#283 St. Louis - Team Colors Collection - Don Soar #283 St. Louis - Team Colors Collection - Don Soar


Tied by: Don Soar
Originated by: Don Soar

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer hook 8xl #2
Thread: Black
Tail: Wood duck flank fibers
Body: Gold flat tinsel
Rib: Gold oval tinsel
Throat: Dark blue hackle fivers
Wing: 2 Coq de Leon hackles flanked by slightly shorter dark blue hackle
Shoulder: Wood duck flank feather
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: The color of the lemon wood duck feathers compliment the gold body and Coq de Leon wing perfectly while the dark blue hackle provides an interesting contrast. The Rams franchise began in 1936, but didn't settle in St. Louis until 1995, capturing a Superbowl title just a few years later in 1999. The teams official colors are Millenium Blue and New Century Gold. When the streamer hits the water, it is a flawless mimic for a shiner.

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.
