Three Hook Flapping (Flatfish Rig)


This rig is specifically designed to catch flatfish such as plaice, flounder and dab. Beads and sequins are added to the hooklengths as these are known to attract inquisitive flatfish species. Long shanked Aberdeen and specialist Cronus Flatfish hooks are used with this rig as these types of hooks are the easiest to remove from the small mouths of flatfish and also allow good bait presentation when used with worm baits.

Available with the following sized hooks:

  • Size 2 Cronus Silver Aberdeen
  • Size 1 Cronus Flatfish Hooks
  • Size 2 Cronus Flatfish Hooks
  • Size 1/0 Cronus Silver Aberdeen
