    Gimmick or Good Idea?

    Let's see. They've tried different colors, a multitude of shapes, various finishes including glow, UV and rippled, all kinds of rattles and shakers, .and now this? Next there will be cappuccino flavored flashers. Yup! Their motto will be, "Guaranteed to keep their eyes open." :lol:

    Not sure why you'd want to distract the visual from your bait - probably get a lot of slams on your flasher instead of the hook end

      Mostly a gimmick IMO. All the colors and patterns are to hook fishermen more than fish. I was a commercial salmon and then tuna troller for 34 yrs and a few staples was all you really needed. THE most important thing you could do was to put the gear in front of their noses and dial in the speed.

        Like my old friend says,"Fishing lures are for catching fishermen" I'm sure it can be extended to other fishing equipment.

          Well, a flasher is designed to impart action to the lure/bait and attract fish to the silvery flash, as in a feeding salmon slashing through a school of baitfish. In deeper water or poor light conditions it may help in the attraction part. We'll have to see if all of the manufacturers follow suit.
