Selene of Maine: Fly design and tying from a master tyer

Professional fly tyer and fly designer, Selene of Maine, will be sharing the evolution of some of her flies as well as a peak into her design process with clients.  Learn why some flies “catch on” and some don’t.

Selene has been tying professionally for nearly 30 years, long enough to have read books when she began tying that are now considered classics that she sells in her fly shop in Gardiner, Maine.
