When the Bucs joined the NFl in 1976, they set a dubious record of 26 straight losses. They lost every game in thier freshman year and continued the streak up to game 12 of the following season for a total of 26 consecutive losses. Their luck turned in 2002 with a Superbowl win against the Oakland Raiders.

Don Soar – Born and raised in central Massachusetts now living in Lancaster with my wife of twenty years Nancy. Fishing started young in life tagging along with my brothers. I took up fly fishing in the early 90’s. Ten years later I started tying flies. After meeting Mike Martinek Jr. at a local fly shop I was introduced to the dark side of fly tying, the long fly.
