We've just moved to Maine for the Summer and in surfing the web I noticed that one of Carrie Steven's protégés, Selene Dumaine, is located close to me; in Brunswick. She operated, until last Fall, a fly shop in the old Fort Andros mill called Merrymeeting Flies (MF). The MF website is still active and says that they'll be a new location in Brunswick announced shortly. The phone number that's given on the site connects to an answer machine that says that there is a new location; but the address that's given doesn't seem to exist on that street (?).

I'm a fly tyer and I'd like to get together with her to get some instruction on how to tie up the Rangeley Streamer patterns; both the old ones and some of her new ones.

So, does anyone know Selene's whereabouts or how to get in touch with her?

Great tier, she is definitely a good one to learn from if you want to tie Rangeley Streamers.

I think she is still working on the location. From the last time we spoke, I think she's trying to find a place that she can accommodate people tying. I believe there is shed that may be used, but its been a while since I last talked to her.

Kevin, I don't think it is. I e-mailed her about 2 weeks ago; a plain vanilla "I'd like to learn how to tie the Rangeley streamer patterns" message, and never got a reply; hence my "hunt".

from Selene:
Yeah- I still exist. I am trying to wrap up the school year and summer school. It is too hard to keep all of the balls that I have up in the air at once. I can't do lessons right now, but maybe during the summer when my school job ends.

That's clear - thanks. I'll try again after school is out.

I read in an article, I think it was in the Portand paper, that she's teaching in Freeport.

Pocono,

If you can pick up a copy of this video.
Mike has a wonderful knowledge of Rangeley streamer history, and is a great fly tyer.

Thanks BRK TRT.

I met Mike this year at the Somerset, New Jersey Fly Fishing Exposition. I watched him tie up one pattern and he gave me a copy of his new book/pamphlet on additional Rangeley streamer patterns; but I don't have a copy of the video that you posted. I'll hunt it up on Amazon.

About Kevin McKay and Maine Fly Fish
My name is Kevin McKay and I became a Master Maine Guide in 2003. But before that I started www.maineflyfish.com, one of the largest fly fishing web sites on the east coast. It is dedicated to helping everyone who is new and experienced, to bring out their best when it comes to fly fishing. So it was only natural I became a guide and I haven't looked back.
