Three Hook Flapping Rig (Flatfish Rig)


This rig is specifically designed to catch flatfish species, although it can also be used to successfully catch smaller round fish species which are found around the UK. This rig can be bought with either size 2 or size 1 Cronus Silver Aberdeen hooks, size 1 Cronus Flatfish hooks which have a turned down eye, long shank and bronzed finish or slightly larger size 1/0 Cronus Silver Aberdeen hooks. These hooks are designed for better presentation of worm baits and the long shanks allows them to be easily removed from the small mouths of flatfish. Whichever hook pattern is chosen the presence of three hooks allows a strong scent trail to be built up with this rig. Beads and sequins have been added to each snood as this is proven to attract inquisitive flatfish species such as plaice and flounder.
