A dodger does what it says, it dodges right to left and back again, it drives Kokanee and Trout crazy with the evasive maneuvers of a panicked baitfish. Drawn to the pulsating flash of silver or gold colored metal, fish chase and strike the trailing bait or lure as they do with flashers. Unlike  flashers though, which pull whatever is behind them in a straight line, dodgers will actually cause the lure itself to dodge from side to side as well. This action will cause fish to "STRIKE" when ordinary flashers simply are not producing.
