B-Fish-N Tackle MasterFlash brings on the bling factor

A new lure from B-Fish-N Tackle has a direct line to the predator-prey dynamic, says its designer Walt Matan.
The MasterFlash Jig leans heavily on the biology behind feeding frenzies and its glittering visual appearance. It is built around the company’s H20 Precision Jighead and is dressed with fine, holographic strands of premium 1/69” tinsel.
The bait’s bling factor, energetic action and tempting profile can be enhanced with a soft plastic or live bait threaded onto the jig shank. Each jig features over 300 multi-coloured strands of tinsel held in place with a flexible collar slid over a unique ‘keeper’ moulded into the jighead. Many will add a little super glue around the collar to really grip the tinsel to the jig.
“We’ve hand-selected a specific premium tinsel material that flexes, folds back and rebounds on the pause,” says Matan. “Also critical is the quantity of strands we chose and the precise placement of the material on the jighead.
“These factors cause the jig to undulate, breathe and pulse during different parts of the retrieve—all of which present fish with a powerfully attractive visual. At rest, the jig’s fibres expand outward, giving off the illusion of a puff of scales after a predator slashes through a school of baitfish.”
The MasterFlash Jig is available in four weights – 1/8 oz; ¼ ounce; 3/8 oz; and 5/8 oz – to cover all fishing situations from shallow to deep. It comes in six colour combinations that give off more flash, action and attraction than any other gamefish jig on the market, claims the manufacturer.
Customs Jigs and Spins, owner of the B-Fish-N Tackle brand, was established in Coralville, Iowa, almost 30 years ago. Some of its favourite baits include the Ratso, Shrimpo, Nuclear Ant and Rat Finkee.
