Match the flasher colour to the colour of water. Most of the time around Vancouver it's green. Otherwise match the flasher colour to the piece of the colour spectrum that is visible in water at the depths you are fishing. Green is good for all the depths normally fished around Vancouver. Otherwise the other flashers work well...Red ones used to be dynamite in the top 40 feet for Coho!

I just keep to the three hotspots, green, chartrus, and red - mostly cause I don't have the buck to get every other colour. As fishingmagician said to the colour of the water... sometime I find the colour of the water is more clear or blue deep so a green can be better if the water brown on top. I always assuming the water is the same deep as shallow. A good sounder can pick out layered water... I don't have a good sounder.
Now I got a question, I bought and aquirered other - fishermen catching colours - like blue, green, purple and silver or the sockeye specials and have had very little success, have you guy had different results?
Have fun, Jason

Purple haze is by far the best I have ever put down there, I used to use green or red before too.

Ah...fishermen and marketing..

I must admit I'm not impervious to marketing..but on the other hand..a green or blue trimmed flasher should do you just about anywhere on the coast. Never mind all this plaid stuff etc...it's not so much the light that attracts the salmon but more the disturbance in the water. I can't remember where I read this but someone out there ran a scientific result and there were some conclusive results.....very interesting.

Fishing in the green to brown water of summer time inside straight I have never needed blue or purple flasher but I am sold - all the clear water you see. It all happened on day at the cap, I caught one good fish 20lb ish and then hooked my rod and rigger on something (it was an odd place for a hook up too, a hundred yard west of the green light in 70 ish feet) brock off my red flasher... put on a green one and not a sniff. It was very good day and though I have no proof it was the flasher.
Have fun, Jason
