#52 Buffalo - Team Colors Collection - Don Soar


Tied by: Don Soar
Originated by: Don Soar

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer 8xl
Thread: Black
Tag: Silver tinsel
Body: Red tinsel
Rib: Wide silver tinsel with a centered blue tinsel wound over
Throat: White hackle fibers
Underwing: White polar bear hair
Wing: Four dark blue hackles
Eye: Jungle cock
Head: Black

Notes: The sweeping blue wing on this streamer reminds me so much of the Bills logo. This is a spectacular streamer with some wonderful work on the ribbing. Buffalo is actually the only New York NFL team to play their home games within New York state proper. Both the New York Giants and the New York Jets play in East Rutherford, New Jersey, nine miles from their headquarters in New York City. The Bills also are the only team to play home games in Canada. In 2008, they struck a deal to play one regular season game per season in Toronto, Ontario. Be sure to check out Don's other TCC submissions in the project.

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.
