Notes: This streamer fly was created in June of 2009 when Selene was leading a Women’s Fly Fishing School at Weatherby’s in Grand Lake Stream, Maine. Prompted by lodge guide Jared Koengs, and in a creative state of mind, Selene put thought to hook and feather resulting in a traditional styled and quite Ghostly streamer. “There were a bizzillion mosquitos that weekend at Forth Lake where we were fishing, hence the name. The weekend was a memory maker for sure and this fly helps to remind me of it.”

Selene Dumaine Selene Dumaine – Selene Dumaine, born the year Carrie Stevens died, is an accomplished fly tyer dedicated to practicing traditional methods of fly tying, as well as originating new patterns to closely replicate the naturals found on her home waters of Maine.
