Decoy Rigging / Flocking
Classic Barnegat Custom Longlines
The longline method of rigging decoys is indispensable when putting out the large quantities of decoys needed to simulate rafts of divers. In this method, a large anchor is put at each end of a long “main line” and then a dozen or so decoys are clipped to that line using “droppers”.
There are two ways to store and use these longlines. The most common way is to wrap the mainline around a spool for storage, clip the anchor to each end, and clip the decoys to the mainline as it’s deployed each time. This method works best for hunters concerned with space in their boats.
The second method is to take a large barrel, garbage can, or rigid decoy bag and put the bottom anchor in. The main line is then coiled into the barrel with the decoys still attached. When coming to the end of the line the last anchor is then taken off and the line is clipped to the top of the barrel. When putting out the decoys, the top anchor is clipped on and deployed, then the main line is just uncoiled with the decoys. This sounds like a tangle waiting to happen, but as long as the top anchor chord is clipped in place for transport and you grab the main line instead of the droppers, this is a much quicker and easier way to deploy the longline.
Classic Barnegat makes their longlines out of only the best .120 tarred line. We also use heavy duty stainless steel lobster clips for each dropper. Our standard longline features 20 feet of anchor line before the first decoy loop, and 6 feet of line between each decoy loop. There is another 20 feet of anchor line after the last loop. Droppers are a full 36 inches to avoid trouble with dogs or fouled motor props. Custom sizes and configurations are also available, just give us a call.

Decoy Flocking Kits
Before deciding on a flocking kit, we searched for one with high quality and great value before deciding on Fowl Flocker. Fowl Flocker has the largest variety of decoy flocking kits on the market as well as kit sizes to fit your flocking needs. In addition, Fowl Flocker kits are the most economical we’ve found because the hunter is allowed to purchase his own adhesive for a fraction of what he would be charged for adhesive in the flocking kit. For adhesive, Rustoleum brush on enamel is recommended as a color matched adhesive.
All kits include: Nylon Flocking, Flocking Applicator, 2- 1" Brushes for Applying Adhesive, Rubber Gloves for Easy Clean Up, 3M Style Dust Mask for Applying Flocking Fibers, Complete Easy to Follow Instructions, Decoy Tips
