Re: where can i buy some nice flashers

I've made a few. For the squid, use something similar to wine-box lining. I found mylar drink pouches off amazon. I've also used reflective sheets used for indoor grow rooms, but the reflective metal coating wore off the first day. Funny though, the sharks loved that squid even without the reflection. For the flasher, I used lexan sheets from Home Depot cut into oval shapes. Then I put reflective tape and glued fish eyes on either side. Strung together using mono and crimps, with an 8oz lead sinker in the squid. I'll try and post some pics later.
