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.

    Hi Don,

    this is very orginal blend of colors, nicely tied STRMR. What are the shoulders (cheeks)? Are those dyed or natural?
