The first booms used in sea angling were home made wire constructions and the basic patterns have survived up until today being added to by more common plastic tubed varieties or solid style short booms for flappers.The longest types are more generally used for boat fishing with lures , usually eel imitations and are referred to as flying collar rigs.From the shore the most popular are short Avis style which sit on the main rig body able to rotate 360 degrees with the hook length(snood) attatched directly to the boom.Another common type used from both boat and short are the small sliding ledger booms which sit on the mainline to which the lead weight is attatched.
