    Only in Canada.

    Most guys use the 11" flashers for salmon.

    Not really that good of a deal for 8”.

    Of course Costco would have a multipack.

    Good colors, but does anyone fish those little flashers?

    We do if running really long wire. Less blowback. They work.

    I've never had any luck with the small flashers, either for salmon or freshwater species (trout, kokanee). That being said, 15 years or so ago we fished Neah Bay on a very foggy day in August, the 11" Pro- troll red flasher with the E-chip fished alongside a Big Al red flasher with identical green splatter back hoochies outfished the non E-chip 4 or 5 to one. The next day in Seiku they fished identically. It wasn't foggy. I was never able to notice a difference after that, but gave up on pro troll as the quality of the flasher and hardware wasn't as good. Now, smaller dodgers have been really good at times, always used dodgers in small and larger sizes quite successfully 30 or 40 years ago, I may try one out soon, I'll let you know how it goes. Anyone else still use dodgers? Bob

    The timing of this is interesting... I was organizing my gear yesterday for an upcoming trip and couldn't find the spare break away rigging for my Q-Coves and started having a panic attack!

    It got me thinking, what would I use? Could I fabricate my own? Did someone in Jina steal Ken's Breakaway technology and is now producing an imitation somewhere on the internet?

    My mind was racing and it wasn't until my wife started slapping and shaking me that I came to my senses. Phew!

    What is everyone's plan B for the day when all your Q-Coves are gone?

    I used these in Puget Sound with success when I started salmon fishing in saltwater but haven't since. Might give one a try on the next trip.

    I have always used 11” flashers, favorite is Hot Spot brand. I like QCove a lot too. I recently bought a couple of the Dick Nite break-away type flashers, but haven’t had a chance to drag one around yet.

    I’ve modified all my flashers with my own break aways thanks to @Spoonman. I actually like them better than the cove because you can do this to any flasher. I’ve been fishing these for 3 years now and they work flawlessly

    Yes. when the fish are are being hit hard, an 8 inch flasher can be the difference between hook up and no hook up. when i see them on the screen but no hook ups with 11 inch flashers, before saying they aren't on the bite, i will run an 8 inch and sometimes have success.

    I would not classify Pro-Troll as junk. Supposed to be a decent coho season. The smaller flashers allow you to fish faster (at coho speeds) and won't pop you off the clip. Those 11" create alot of drag.....not a bad deal if you want to target coho..thanks for the info....

    I classify ProTroll as junk because that's what the product is-the shittiest made flasher on the market

    Source-I used to sell them and they literally fell apart on the shelf.

    One Guy I met had a great idea his friend had a small commercial troller and they decided to use ProTroll on one side and regular double BB swivel Hot Spots on the other as a control.

    Results-the ProTroll all fell apart after a day of commercial use-chips fell off & the swivels seized.

    I had an 11” that had a bubble in the Mylar. I called ProTroll And they sent me a new replacement as well as a new one with the flashing light in the same color. No charge.
    Not to mention the agitation fin works at slower speeds.
    I’m a fan.
