The HotChip flashers are fish catching leaders in the different types of flashers. They are probably used in more applications that any other flasher series. They are a trolling device that attract salmon with vibration from their kicking and spinning action. They are attached to your fishing line and then a bait, lure or hoochie is tied between 24 to 48 inches behind the flasher. This tail leader length is the most important rigging feature in catching salmon. Typical trolling speeds are 2.0 to 3.0 MPH.
