Notes: This fly was created for Darren MacEachern, the man behind the Streamers365 project. Selene states that it was Darren who got her back to the tying bench after a long hiatus.

I’m stoked and humbled to have a pattern named in my honor, and words can not convey the gratitude felt. I love the maroon and dark colors, it’s masculine and looks like it would clean-up on stream. Thanks for not tying it in hot pink. – Darren

Rumor has it the streamer has already been sold to a motivated bidder.

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.
