#121 Pittsburgh - Team Colors Collection - Don Soar


Tied by: Don Soar
Originated by: Don Soar

Hook: VMC B-17 #2
Thread: White
Tail: Yellow hackle fibers
Body: Yellow floss
Rib: Black wire
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Yellow hackle fibers
Wing: Four black hackles
Shoulder: Silver pheasant
Eye: Jungle cock
Head: Black with yellow band

Notes: This one could easily have been Carrie Stevens' version of the Black Ghost had Herb Welch not created his version of the iconic streamer. Both the silver pheasant shoulder and the Steeler's colors make this a shoe-in for a Stevens design. I also noticed that Don used a little bit heavy hook for this tie, perhaps to honor the likes of The Hammer, Iron Mike and Mean Joe Greene.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
