Selene Dumaine is widely regarded as one of the premiere tiers of classic fly patterns in the U.S. But she spends a lot of her time creating new custom designs for her customers, one of which, the aptly named Sure Bet, recently grabbed the attention of fly shop owners and anglers in Maine. ”I thought, “Well, pike like to eat yellow perch. I’ll make something that looks like a little yellow perch,” ‘Dumaine said this week at Chandler Pond Outfitters, where she sets up a fly-tying operation for a couple of days each week to try and meet the quaint little store’s surging demand.” Travis Barrett in the Kennebec Journal.
