A sabiki rig, or simply sabiki, is a set of small lures

Typically used to catch plankton eating fish. A sabiki is typically fished off boats, piers, jetties, or any structure over the water. Sabikis consist of any number (usually between 6 and 10) of small hooks each on a leader which is a few inches long. The individual leaders are then tied to a longer leader in series, about 6 inches apart; a weight is tied to the end of the leader

The individual hooks are decorated as lures, usually resembling small shrimp, or tied like flies similar to those ised in fly fishing. Often they have a simple piece of metalic or pearlescent film attached to them. On any individual rig all of the lures will be identical

The type or size sabiki used depends on water conditions, species of fish sought or simply the anglers preference

Appolo or sabiki rigs with their many small, sharp hooks are easily tangled and can be a nuisance to the angler. If they are not handled carefully the angler can be hooked. This can be avoided by using a sabiki rod

A sabiki rod is a hollow fishing rod with a funnel shaped tip. The line is fed from the reel through the hollow body of the rod and out of the funnel shaped tip

When the the sabiki rig is reeled in the hooks and leaders are drawn directly into the rod where they will not tangle or injure the angler

In Brunei Darussalam, we called it anjun

lets fish! game on... feel it!
