A sabiki rig is a popular rig for those fishing from structures or boats over the water. Also called a flasher rig, this rig is normally made with 6 to 10 small hooks. Each one of the hooks is tied to its own dropper line, which usually measures just a few inches. Each dropper line is tied to a longer leader. These droppers should be placed 6-inches apart from one another. A weight is attached at the bottom of the leader. Finally, flies or lures are attached to the hooks that are tied to look like fly fishing lures. Many anglers like to add a piece of iridescent or luminescent material to each lure or fly.
When creating the rig, choose either identical-looking lures, or alternate the colors/patterns. The target fish and water conditions will determine the size of the sabiki rig. Generally, sabiki rigs are used to catch baitfish, though some people use them to catch sport fish as well.
