Notes: Beautiful dark reds contrasted with white and a hint of black. The Arizona Cardinals are the oldest team in the NFL, being established back in 1898, well before the formation of the NFL in 1920. The team started out in Chicago, moved to St. Louis and now resides in Tempe. From the fisherman’s viewpoint, red and white is a hit, and should prove to be an effective pattern early in the season.

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.
