Notes: The Broncos started playing in 1960, and have captured 2 Super Bowl championships over their franchise history. Don has put together a charming dark streamer based on the Orange Crush colours of the Broncs. This is a perfect streamer to pull out of the streamer wallet to try on a wet dark fall day. The colors also hit on a similar scheme as the Rangeley lakes blueback trout, a strain of Arctic Char only found in Maine.
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.
