12 of the best producing patterns
Inspired by Landlocked Salmon
Chet Dubriske began tying streamers in about 1953 and shortly thereafter added the name CeeDee Streamers to his labels. His business started in his room at the Keene Fire Department and soon fishermen from the region were stopping in and picking up a few flies for trolling and casting.
The advent of fishing landlocked salmon on lake Winnipesaukee began to spread in the early 1960's and then everyone was eager to catch these big salmon. Chet often told stories of how an 8 to 10 lb Salmon was common in those days. And as he and a few other anglers began spreading the news the demand for fish producing streamers blossomed. Word spread throughout New England and the frenzy that started long ago is still as exciting as ever.
Today landlocked salmon are flourishing in several lakes in New England and New York. Fish and Game managers do an incredible job in maintaining this fishery and the chance for for a 7-8 lb. trophy is very good. From experience we now that a featherwing streamer is perhaps the best option to hook the big boys due to the close resemblance of the Landlocked's preferred food, rainbow smelt. Our streamers imitate smelt both in form and function. We are confident that you will be pleased with the results when jigging a CeeDee Featherwing Streamer.
Good Luck and Good Fishing!
