Thanks for confirming.

Iím about to join a lake as a member. A rule states not to use foam for zig rigs. So what else can you use that floats and isnít plastic or foam?

Regarding safety systems, many places do not want fixed rigs. To my understanding a fixed rig is where the lead is connected/tied directly to mainline therefore no way for the lead to unclip or eject.

How does one get around this with zig fishing? The lead is tied directly to with no way of ejecting the lead, from video tutorials I have seen. Or, should a lead clip be used for zigs as well?

TIA

Yes. I've only really used pop ups and foam.
Will try some different offerings also this year to try and up my game.

Fake corn, 12mm pop ups, bits of Cork, fake dog biscuits, zig bugs, critters and different coloured foam. All work at different times. Try them all.

the usual zig foam is quite small and refined, but I've heard of people catching on whopping great chunks of foam and size 4 hooks!

Sounds about right mate, I saw the Fox one yesterday and that's the same size as the one you've bought.

Just interested in getting an idea of the approximate diameter of foam other people are using for your zig rigs.
I've previously been using foam that is around 10mm diameter but just today received a zig foam kit from Bank Tackle and the foam is only 6mm o/d.
Seems a bit small to me compared to what i've been using.
What do you reckon?
