Notes: If you know Don, you can probably imagine him humming La Pantera Mambo as he tied up this quite pink streamer. Fishing this streamer on the west coast rivers in clear waters should raise some big steelhead and salmon. The streamer presents many varied shades of pink and is a brilliant steelhead attractor fly. Don has a wonderfully large palate of colours and material to choose from and it is a joy to see it all come together.
Don 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.
