Sparky Streamer, Squam's Big John and RJ's Red & Gray
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.
