My late friend Don Coleman was very instrumental in my journey into salmon flies. In the late 1980’s Don hosted a salmon fly tying class in Chicago where Wayne Luallen taught Don and a few others including Gene Sunday. I met Don shortly after he had cataract surgery and started to tie salmon flies again. He did a lot of editing on the original FeathersMc website. Below is a picture of Don in my booth at the International Fly Tying Symposium New Jersey 2004. I miss you Don.
Here is a slideshow of some of his flies:
