What is the ZIG RIG?
With the term “zig rig” is indicated a particular technique of carp fishing that previewsfishing of carpsand amurin the intermediate layers of waterand not on the bottom.
In England there exists since the night of time,in Europe has been established over the last five yearsthanks to the great results he gave toGarters.
To be, today, the main technique for all official races.
The zig rig is considered a technique from warm periods.
When the temperature rises, the fish tend to come to the surface, where they find heat and water more oxygenated thanks to the wind, but especially food: for example, insects.
It is not by chance that summer is the time when carps are seen more afloat.
But be careful: even in autumn and winter the zig rig says its, especially in the most pressed spots.
The zig rig technique can be applied through two different frames for construction and type of trim: zig rig “classical” and “adjustable”.
The “classic” frame is the simplest to achieve: It is enough to make a normal beam to apply a loop clip and to attach to the lap a terminal as long as the distance from the bottom to which we must fish.
For example, if we want to fish at 3 meters from the bottom, we will have to make a terminal from 3 meters.
Of course, with this frame, an in-depth knowledge of the seabed is needed through the use of a floating-marker.
In fact, it is very different if in front we have a maximum base of 3 meters or one of 10.
STRATEGY OF FISHING IN ZIG
Before talking about bait, it is appropriate to explain the basic idea that lies at the base of the zig rig: we must “cover” as many areas as possible by moving the bait into the different layers of water dynamically, in order to understand where the fish stand.
In fact, during the course of the day, they are never at the same point but move continuously.
That is why, having three rods, it is good to differentiate the various mounts in different layers of water, in order to “intercept” the fishes just where they are eating.
Small tip: the “three quarters” are always a good base of departure (i.e., on a 4 meter seabed, we leave with a barrel at 3, one at 2 and just below the surface, if not afloat).
