Notes: Don’s streamers always display a glimpse into his artistic side and showcase his eye for color. The Crimson Fly is was tied on a red and black theme. The black of the badger hackle is mirrored in the band on the head of the fly as Don takes a queue from Carrie Stevens. The Crimson Fly should serve anglers well on cloudy and dark days, trolling the deep cool waters of Northern Maine.

Don OrdesDon Ordes – Mr. Fantasy Fly. I don’t know how to describe myself as a fly tier, so I don’t know anyone else could, at least and be accurate. I enjoy all kinds of tying and then some which aren’t even kinds one can explain. I am serious at times, but most times not. I enjoy flies for fishing, but not the ones anyone else fishes.
