Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer 8xl
Tail: Red hackle fibers
Body: Black floss
Rib: Red tinsel
Belly: Black bucktail
Throat: Red hackle fibers
Wing: Two black hackle flanked by two red hackles on each side
Eye: Jungle cock
Notes: I wouldn’t be surprised to walk into the Georgia Dome and see this classy streamer hanging in an conspicuous location, intended to bring a nugget of extra luck to the home team. Don continues not to disappoint with the Falcons colors of red and black well represented in this classic presentation. I’m not sure if it was entirely intended, but the slighter red hackles laid over the broader black hackle has a favourable look to the finished wing.
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.
