Just wondered if anyone had any tips for casting zigs?  Sometimes the surrounding swim prevents the casting of say a 5ft zig.  I’m sure I read you can tie them up with pva tape but I can’t get it to work for me?

Hi Jim,

The easiest way is to lay your unhooking mat down behind you and coil the line down on that.

I have also seen anglers coil their hook link in a saucepan or mug even but the mat gives you more room to simply lower onto and is a more proficient way than using PVA which shrinks rather than melts. This means the PVA forms a tight ball around where you tie which can result in it not releasing.

Hope this helps.

Best fishes, Shaun
