Don was a huge part of the Streamers 365 project and we will miss miss him dearly. He was truly one of friendliest people behind the vise. Who can forget the epic series of streamers Don developed to honour the NFL. He also developed some other beautiful streamers, his Kokanee Sunrise being one of my favourite. Don Soar passed away suddenly on Saturday, October 18, 2014 at the age of 51. He will be missed dearly.

Never heard of the man (but I am still new to the scene) but definitely too young to pass. Very nicely spoken.

He sent one of his Kokanee Sunrise streamers to me a few years ago. Truly a stunning fly. Wish I had met him...

Very very sad news... Thoughts and prayers sent to his family.

Darren .. I am saddened to hear of this loss to the fly-fishing community. I never knew Don, but like many, knew of his work. He will be sorely missed. :(

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.
