Luhr Jensen Coyote Flashers and flies for trophy Great Lakes salmon & trout.

Posted on May 19th, 2014

When Great Lakes salmon & trout start to scatter, the Luhr Jensen Coyote Flasher & Luhr Jensen Fly rig can really produce big.  Flashers are designed to attract feeding salmon from a distance.  The action of the flasher “flashing” from side to side can get the attention form another salmon as far as 100′ away.  The “flash” looks like a salmon that is feeding and chaning direction to feed on bait.  When the pursuing salmon get’s close it spots the fly behind the flasher and strikes it!

The key is fishing the flasher/fly at the right depth and also having the right distance between the flasher/fly and the cannon ball or diving device.  Aggressive salmon/trout will readily strike a flsher/fly that is within 3-6′ of the cannon ball/diving device, while more leery fish need a longer lead from the cannon ball/diving device to the flasher/fly.  Trial and error is the best way to find the right combination.
