New member.Been a while since I've been fishing. Seen the "No fixed bolt rigs" rule and the tragic story about the tethered mirror carp. I don't use the "complicated" rigs but often used to fish with a feeder between two swan shot - does that count as fixed? If so, do I just lose the top shot to create a runnng rig? TBH I don't tend to go after the lumps and am looking forward to trotting a float on the Trent when the season opens in a few weeks, but I thought I might have a go at Ully Gully to test out my tackle first.

The feeder rig you describe, with two swan shot is classed as fixed. If your line were to snap above the feeder (on cast or snag) and bait then picked up, the fish would be dragging that feeder around indefinitely.

Not to be used for fish safety.

Best way around it is use as heavy feeder as you can get away with and keep a tight line, fish hook themselves against the weight of the feeder.
