Notes: This is a fine example of some Don’s creative work with the scissors to incorporate the team logo into a pattern. This one should be put on the wall in Arrowhead Stadium as it is a wonderful representation of the team colors and logo. The Chiefs started out as the Dallas Texans in 1960 playing in the AFL and moved to their current home in 1963.

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.
