Notes: The St. Ingace Streamer is the last in the trio of streamers originated by Robert E. Coulson of Buffalo, New York. The trio also includes the Saguenay Streamer and the Lord Denby Streamer which were designed for fishing the large coaster brook trout of Ontario’s Nipigon River. The St. Ingace Streamer was named for St. Ignace Island, located at the mouth of the Nipigon River system and known for its shallow shores which attract large numbers of baitfish. This in turn attracts the hungry coaster brook trout that the area is so well known for.
