Three-hook flapper

This is another popular match-rig, especially when targeting Flounder, Whiting, Coalfish or any other in-shore species. It is particularly useful when short-range casting amongst numbers of fish. This rig can be tied long or short within reason depending on exactly what you wish to achieve. Longer snoods may be productive over slack or neap tides to create added movement, or scale the whole rig down with short snoods when numbers of Whiting move in. Add beads or small flicker spoons above the hooks for added attraction.
