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 Saguenay 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. Mr Coulson was an outdoors writer who wrote under the pen name “Breems Forrest” The Lord Denby Streamer was named for Lord Denby who accompanied Mr. Coulson on the Nipigon in pursuit of storied brook trout of the area.
