With most fisheries only allowing 1 treble hook on any spinning Rapala/plugs, ?
Most Rapala's are armed with 2 trebles,and originals with 3 , shocker in IMOP.
The vision 110.'s come with 3 trebles . and they are rigged with 2 swivels and split rings with the one treble rig using the top 2 hook rigs and secure the hook on the middle one. the treble being near the tail-less rear.
I like my hook to be nearer the middle than the tail
Below are pics explaining how to rig 2 hook most rapalas , Countdowns and XRaps
My hook ups have greatly increased since using Raps this way as the salmon 90% of takes are in the head region, the treble breaks away from the wire on the loop ,no leverage at all . Mind you with this rig the rapala is always swimming outside the mouth region with the fish in play, in their vision , I find the fish fight even harder ? maybe to escape its prey ?
1, pierce a hole in the centre of the vane , a hot needle is the best way ,
2 using a length of 18/20Lb nylon thread the nylon through the front vane eye loop & take the 2 lengths through the hole in the vane
Attach a split ring to the treble hook , and knot the 2 lengths of nylon to the split ring . and secure with several twists of copper wire ,,,,most important a split ring for the treble to be free swinging, If the lengths of nylon were attached directly to the hook it would act as a rudder on either side resulting in a very poor action
I never trust a rapala knot for line attachment, always a rolling swivel and spit ring, the nylon " must be on the underside of the split ring
when raps or visions are stripped of their rear treble and split ring ? it looks so unreal there is no tail ,just a loop, looks chronic, , what I do is crimp the loop flat with plyers and grip the rapala in my fly tying vice by the top loop, and tie in a tail , this gives the rap greater lifelike movement
