Hi Guys, can you advise me as to how you tie your Zig Rigs. Diagrams if possible please!

I've tied a few, but when I've gone for a long length I have difficulty casting and normally results in 'angling meets bondage!

Any help as ever would be very much appreciated.

Thanks!

try using a length of fluorocarbon instead linda. The stiffness of the flurocarbon will still enable the bait to float high up in the water but where it's not as supple as braid or normal mono, it will not tangle up. If not - it's best to make them on a heli-rig as apposed to a normal semi-fixed bolt rig,
hope it helps!!!

Linda coil the line very carefull and tie with PVA string, cast out once melted it floats up uncurling as it goes

Linda, try using a normal run ring and leave the bail arm off the reel until the bait is up on the surface, fish are usually hooked in the bottom lip with this method as the strike is downwards towards the lead.
