What is a Sabiki Rig?

Dear Captain"What is a Sabiki Rig?"

Hi Joe,

A Sabiki Rig is a line with a approximately six or more little hooks that run vertically down the line. The little hooks have fish skin attached to them along with a little piece of metallic material along the shank. Some look like fly fishing flies. These are connected with a small dropper line to the main sabiki line. One end is tied to your main fishing line and the other end of the sabiki rig has a clip where you attach a weight, like a bank sinker to the clip.

The sabiki rig is used to catch bait and other prey to use for your fishing. They make them in very very small sizes to catch bait and bigger sizes that anglers actually use to catch bigger bait or some small gamefish like mackerel. You can buy them at all tackle shops in different sizes. Attached is a photo of a sabiki rig in its package and a diagram of a sabiki rig tied to a rod and reel.
