Most Decoy Flags consist of lightweight fabric sewn to a y-handle with a hand grip. They are used by waving them up and down in rapid succession.  Decoy flags are generally used to attract ducks or geese at long distances.  They are an inexpensive, but effective decoying method.

Overall, flags are a good way to attract distant water fowl to your spread at a very affordable price.  I generally use flags when hunting open fields or pits.  If used properly, flags can help you achieve your daily bag limit.
