The Yakima Big Al’s Flasher is a salmon flasher designed to offer the highest level of attraction without any drag. The Big Al’s Fish Flashers from Yakima Bait Company are among the most popular Salmon fishing flashers among anglers in both fresh and saltwater. The unique shape of the Big Al’s Fish Flashers enable anglers to use them in just about any configuration they choose. The Big Al’s Fish Flashers are often used in combination with live bait or hoochies to attract strikes from big salmon. When targeting Salmon in saltwater, among the most popular configurations includes a 8″ or 10″ flasher with approximately 36″-48″ of tail leader with anchovy or herring. If the Salmon are aggressive, usually earlier in the season, anglers may find a shorter leader to be more suitable. If choosing to use a lure behind a flasher its best to stick with the lightest weight possible as to not inhibit the flashers action. In freshwater, anglers will find the same setup to work well, but with a 4″ or 6″ flasher and live bait such as shad or smelt.
