Two Hook Flapping Rig

This is an all round rig which is an ideal choice to use when a wide number of species can be caught and no particular species is being targeted. Since there is no rotten bottom or weak link release this rig is best used when fishing an area that is snag-free as the weight or snood becoming lodged in a snag will see the whole rig being lost. The use of two hooks allows two different baits to be used which therefore increases the chances of attracting a fish. In the diagram above size 2/0 hooks are used as they are a size that can still hook sub-1lb fish such as whiting, coalfish, pouting or rockling but can also handle bigger fish such as cod and bass, making them ideal for general fishing. Of course, smaller hooks can be used if these species are being targeted or are more likely to be present at the mark being fished.
