Notes: The Green Bay Packers could be considered the NFL’s most successful team with 13 league championships. The Green and Gold operate as a non-profit, in fact they are the only non-profit, community-owned major league professional sports team in the United States. The teams began as a joint effort between a couple of high school rivals, Earl “Curly” Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun, joined forces in 1919. Lambeau secured a donation for uniforms from his employer, the Indian Packing Company, with the condition that the team be named after the sponsor.

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.
