Tying Flash Chasers

Here's an easy way to add something a little different to your streamers. When the water is clear these are really fun to fish, most of the time you can watch blue gill chasing the flash before a bass crushes the streamer. I've heard them called pom poms, flash teasers, I like flash chaser because essentially that is what it is, when fished it looks like something small and annoying is chasing the streamer. Here are the steps to making a flash chaser.

Material

5-6 inch piece of 20 lb mono melted on both ends (like mono eyes)

Wing flash

A tooth pick

UTC 140 thread

Clear Cure Goo or similar

 Trim the tooth pick and place in the vise.

 Tie in the mono, with the end at the butt of the tooth pick

 Invert and add another clump off flash, Whip finish and glue I like to hit it with Clear Cure Hydro and trim tooth pick off just in front of your thread.

These also move a little more water then a streamer without and usually get the attention of more fish. Add one to your favorite streamer and test it out.
