This is a rig that I have used for over 50yrs now and with much success. I can't claim the design as I copied it from and old codger back in the 60s.

I am at a loss as to why it hasn't found more favour with others. It is so versatile due to the fact that it can be reversed so that the flappers can be used on the bottom with suitable sized hooks of course for the flatties whilst a larger hook for the whiting, cod etc. If you use the quick link for changing you hook at a whim it becomes so much easier.

Sorry about the drawing as it's not one of my strong points

That's what I mean, it can be used both in the conventional way or upside down, so as to suit the conditions and fish availability.

Good tip their Keith. I use something similar when sole hunting (so's they don't feel any resistance from the sinker). But your drawing has got me thinking again as it is now dab season in our neck of the woods and they are riight tasty if you can get them big enough.
