3 Hook Flapper. 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 which is snag free as the weight or snood becoming lodged in a snag will see the whole rig being lost. However, this rig can be easily converted into one which is more appropriate for rough ground fishing by swapping the link for a Gemini Breaker or similar release link. 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 which can still hook sub-1lb fish such as whiting, coal-fish, pouting or three bearded rock-ling but can also handle bigger fish such as cod and bass.
