Flash Generator  Q & A:

Q: What is the Flash Generator™ and how is it used?

A: The Flash Generator™ is made out of a extremely lightweight, flashy metal and can be used in different ways in fly design to generate a fish-enticing flash and to add a little weight to the fly. As an example, it can be positioned on the shank in front of a fly tying bead where its perfect in-line balance produces continuous movement (even when dead-drifted or on the drop) or it can be added as an appendage to other parts of your streamer to produce flash. An example of this type of fly is Senyo’s Gangsta Minnow (see below) where it is hung from the back of an articulated shank.

A: This will vary from fly-to-fly, but typically you would use this on a #6 or #4 streamer hook.

Q: How many are in a pack?

A: There are 8 Flash Generators™ per pack.
