Notes: And with the Miami TCC, the entire 32 team roster has been presented in streamer form thanks to Don Soar. The Dolphins franchise began in 1966 in the American football league and joining the NFL in 1970 when the AFL-NFL merger took place. In 1972, the Dolphins completed the NFL’s only perfect season which includes both the regular season and playoffs. This epic run resulted in the Dolphins first Superbowl win. The Dolphins went on to also win Super Bowl VIII (1973), becoming the first team to appear in three consecutive Super Bowls (1971-73), and only the second team to win back to back championships.

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.
