We’ve got some great new products for zig fishing being launched next week – a new line for tying them plus a storage system!
When you’re fishing zigs, a lot of the time you will have a variety of different lengths and different hookbait colour combinations tied up ready to go, but they can get in a real mess, and this is where the new Zig Box comes into play.
The Zig Box is a compact storage system which will hold up to 20 pre-tied rigs on four EVA spools (which are supplied), complete with pins to hold them in place, and will fit neatly into a side pocket of your rucksack. Each spool will hold up to five rigs, dependent on how long they are.
The box itself is made from tough, impact-proof plastic and closes securely, and it is compatible with the existing range of Korda ready rigs which come on spools, and it will hold eight of these or a combination of the two spool sizes.
As well is storing zigs, it is also perfect for pre-tied leaders, such as for chod fishing, with the number you can fit in it dependent on the rig components on the leader.
The Zig Box is in tackle shops from next week and will retail at £10.99.
When it comes to tying up your zig rigs, the new ZIG line is the perfect choice of hook link material and is purpose designed for this type of situation, as well as being great for floater fishing.
ZIG has reduced stretch, which helps when it comes to hooking fish on zigs and on the surface, and it is low diameter for its breaking strain at just 0.22mm for the 7lb version; 0.25mm for 9lb; and the 11lb breaking strain line is 0.28mm.
The low diameter makes it harder for the fish to see it mid-water, or on the surface due to its reduced silhouette, and these camouflage properties are aided by its tinted green colour.
Despite these properties it is still quite a tough line and has a very high knot strength as long as you are careful, with Palomar and knotless knots being ideal.
