The Goddard Zig Rig
I have been using this version of the Zig Rig for some years, says Chris Goddard, usually with my own version of the bread roll rig.
I usually use this rig with my own version of the bread roll rig. I have been using it for some years and have caught several fish with it.
I can see the awkwardness of the way the zig rig usually seems to be used, but this is such a simple solution I wonder if there is something wrong with it
Silicone tubing has been omitted for clarity.
From the right:
- A stop-knot tied on the line.
- A small plastic bead to hit the knot.
- An ordinary buffer bead to stop the leger ring passing over the small ball.
- Leger ring with weak link to allow the lead to beak off
- Another buffer bead (to allow easy switch-over to leger rig if you want to, by breaking off the cork ball)
- Swivel and long fluorocarbon hooklength (for bread roll rig)

About the Rigs Page
- The Rigs Page is a library of features to illustrate all those rigs that will be useful to both beginners and experienced anglers.
- The rigs can be extremely simple and well known, or very complicated and little known, it doesn't matter providing they make some kind of sense and have a really practical application.
- It could be a standard running leger rig that a beginner will appreciate seeing in pictures, or a very complicated anti-eject carp rig that the experienced carp angler would like to see.
- If you wish to contribute a rig to this section please remember that the emphasis is on illustration rather than words. Good line drawings are fine in the absence of photographs. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org
