Notes: The Saguenay Streamer is a part of a trio of streamers originated by Robert E. Coulson of Buffalo, New York. The trio also includes the Lord Denby Streamer and the St. Ignace Streamer which were designed for fishing the large coaster brook trout of Ontario’s Nipigon River. The streamers share a similar style to each other, being dressed with a pulled down collar style throat and the pheasant tippet tails. The Saguenay Streamer was named for one of Mr. Coulson’s Native American guides.
