The ProChip 8 Flasher is an eight inch flasher with a diagonal kicker fin on the back which give the flasher a more erratic kicking action particularly at slow speeds. It can be run as slow as 1 MPH with outstanding action. It has a minimum drag when a fish is hooked. It includes the EChip for "live bait" nerve pulses. This flasher is rapidly growing in popularity. It is very popular in the Great Lakes where it is used with a salmon fly 22 to 24 inches behind the flasher. More salmon are caught on flashers than by any other fishing technique. The vibration of the flasher duplicates the tail movement of a salmon charging a school of baitfish. Salmon detect this vibration in their lateral line up to 50 feet away and will charge in hopes of finding baitfish.
The action of the ProChip 8 flashers is amazing. It spins in an erratic circle while kicking from side to side at the same time. It gives great action to a bait or hoochie behind it. The use of this flasher is slowly displacing a lot of eleven inch flashers. It is easy to handle and can be coupled on short leaders (some fishermen use as short as 30 inches front and back). It also has much less drag than an 11 inch flasher.
