Default Rigging dead Flyers for trolling.....?

Does anyone have a link or a quick guide to rigging dead flying fish for trolling?

I think I can figure out a way, but wanted to see if anyone has some experience with this could give me some tips.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, but I still need something more descriptive.

Anybody know if you should cut open the belly and stitch your hook back in like a Mackerel, or if you can run through the gills like a Bally?

We rig them like a ballyhoo with a pin rig, bigger hook,small skirt in front,
and slow troll them at 4-5 knots for YFT......Better still ,wire the wings open and slow troll them under a kite so they skip across the surface.....and wait for the explosive strike as a big ass YFT comes hammering out of the water onto your bait..!! Be careful tho, we had a 300+ Marlin take one last year, lots of fun til he chafed thro the 80# fluoro leader!!
