Zig Rig Tangles


Recommended Posts

its probably the float rising quicker than the bait causing the tangle.


inline lead i find is best, and depending on how deep,just tie the lenght you want to fish at ,without a sunken float. put the hook in a bucket or cup if needed to stop it snagging the bank on the cast.


or use a the run rig and short hook lenght and add a pva bag of mixers or pva nuggets, something that will pull the line up to the depth your after.

I use a fixed length Zig and have cast hooklinks in excess of 12ft long with no tangles, the bait it the bucket works very well.


The main thing you need to do though is use a safety clip lead drop off system, and have it so it dumps the lead very easily. because it can be very hard work when fishing long hooklinks and having a lead bouncing around adding another angle and pressure to the hook that can lead to more lost fish.


Hope that helps...
