The Zig Rig put simply is a buoyant hookbait fished directly off the lead on a long hooklink of anywhere between 1ft and up to the surface. Zig Rigs are usually tied from very fine, pre-stretched monofilament hooklinks between 10-15lb breaking strain depending on weed and snags present and most anglers tend to use hooks between sizes 8-10. The main benefit of the Zig Rig is that it enables you to present your hookbait right in front of the carp’s face as they spend many hours swimming in the mid and upper layers of the water. By experimenting with fishing your rods at different depths you will eventually find the depth at which the carp are willing to feed and can then change all of your rods to that magic depth. The best hookbait to use for Zig Rigs is coloured foam, which is fished in conjunction with a Zig Aligna on your hook.
