Fly Tiers: Selene Dumaine

February 6, 2006 By: Marshall Cutchin

Classic pattern expert and fly tier extraordinaire Selene Dumaine is profiled in this piece by Deirdre Fleming. “Dumaine, in a similar fashion, in virtually the exact same method, lifts and twirls the fishing line over her Green Beauty to tie together its various parts, just as Stevens did back in 1924. You can barely see the line as Dumaine wraps an invisible spell over the fly. ‘It’s my hex,’ she said, without looking up.” On MaineToday.com.
