The rig is basically an assembly of fishing hooks, lures, or line which is used in fishing. There are some best fishing rigs which are very durable and useful in fishing.

Flapper Rig

This is the simple and one of the best rigs. These are very effective which comes with one, two and three hooks version. You can choose according to your needs. These are also called 2up and 1down flapper rigs.

The best way is to tie the hook on the swivel between a couple of beads and locking clamp. This increases the chances of catching fish. It moves around the line, flaps the bait in the current, and attracts the passing fish around that.

Clipped Rigs

These rigs also come with one two and three hooks version but are little different from the flipper rigs. Clipper rigs involve two more components which are a bait clip for each snood and bait stop for every snood.

Since these rigs end in a linked clip and not in a bait clip, it needs impact lead. This provides a clip to the lower hook and there is one more change in clipped rigs. The rolling swivel at the inner end of the dropper is replaced with a cascade swivel.

The use of impact lead is necessary for clipped rigs because impact leads have bait clips build alongside the attachment eye. This helps the rig to be anchored where you want it to be in strong tidal waves. Also, in other elements which are used in clipped rings is bait stop is to keep the bait firmly attached to the hook during casting during the strong current.
