Selene A. Dumaine - Fly Tyer
Mainetoday.com has a profile of fly tyer Selene A. Dumaine. Ms.Dumaine ties fully dressed flies to the exacting specifications of the original recipe. She specializes in tying the streamer patterns made famous by Carrie G. Stevens who developed, among others, the Grey Ghost.
"I think creating my own patterns is an art," Dumaine said. "But tying is not an art."
It is, without a doubt, a sacred custom. For all fly fishermen, that is an unspoken truth."
