Hi josh, Its basically a device that helps keep the snood / hook away from the main rig body and mainly helps reduce the risk of tangles.

Its normally a length of plastic or wire that fastens to your trace and stands out so that you hook lengths dont tangle with your trace line.

i'll add a silly question to this thread!

how many of you on here use a boom rig, and when would/wouldn't you use one?

Sorry if it's a daft question, I am new to Sea Fishing and kinda lost without my roach pole lol

When casting distance is important as booms can drasticallly cut down you distance, I use them for boat fishing and pier fishing.

I am an ex Salfordian myself and used to cycle from Eccles to Blackpool every weekend to fish the north Pier before it collapsed and that was in summer and winter.

I use long wire booms for boat angling (stops the snoods wrapping round the main rig body) and short plastic ones for beach angling to reduce tangling.

Only just noticed this reply Sorry Keith.. I only got in to sea fishing last summer, when I lived in Eccles I used to fish the Bridgewater canal.
My family had 2 caravans on Newton Hall camp in Blackpool so spent most weekends there myself...
