Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer hook 8xl #2
Tail: Wood duck flank fibers
Body: Gold flat tinsel
Rib: Gold oval tinsel
Throat: Dark blue hackle fivers
Wing: 2 Coq de Leon hackles flanked by slightly shorter dark blue hackle

Notes: The color of the lemon wood duck feathers compliment the gold body and Coq de Leon wing perfectly while the dark blue hackle provides an interesting contrast. The Rams franchise began in 1936, but didn’t settle in St. Louis until 1995, capturing a Superbowl title just a few years later in 1999. The teams official colors are Millenium Blue and New Century Gold. When the streamer hits the water, it is a flawless mimic for a shiner.
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.
