I was on Iceshanty, and reading this testimony about the guys first flasher. I thought his post was comical, and would help people in their decision in getting a flasher. So here is is... "I have an unfair advantage now in the form of a Marcum VX-1. This is the first flasher I have ever owned and catching fish is like too easy now that I can see them!! Went to one of my favorite honey holes and I know the trout and char hang out near the bottom. Drop my transducer in the hole and just look. Sure enough orange and red coming and going near the bottom. Drop my jig and I can watch the flasher go green, orange, red, set the hook. Nothing to it! But watching closer what is that green fliker from time to time about half way up? Reel up the jig about half way and yep theres a red flash and set the hook. First time I even knew the fish could be found anywhere except on the bottom. This is like picking apples, when you see red GRAB IT! If you aren't fishing with a flasher you don't know what you're missing!! Unfair Advantage Dan = Lots of fish in the freezer!!!! Poor Little Fishy's."
