Not often something genuinely new comes along in sport fishing. Today I saw this device in action. No such thing as a "level playing field" anymore.
It was very cold at the river this morning and I only stayed a few minutes. That was plenty long enough to watch this amazing device in action.
Fish no longer have a chance. Furthermore anglers have no reason to learn watercraft. I'm old I know. This is a sad day for serious competitive angling.
Theres little difference to our bait boats except it can dive for close ups ,note the trailing aerial (if its one or perhaps a control line?) As wireless is hopeless under water.
Looks good though some thing for the bivvy boys to lose in the snags but under water so harder to find
I think though for general underwater exploration a great thing ,i once visited a house with a lake with a 6ft window in the side of it and it was enthralling ,nowadays you could get bigger windows i expect
I think the russians would snap them up looking for tanks in lakes it certainly beats getting sore arms throwing magnets
Not sure what you mean by competitive angling ? Do you mean matches ?(i find angling far from competitive ) in that case they could simply not be allowed as unfair to matchmen who dont posses them.
Our matchmen have any feature at all in the pond removed incase it gives an advantage why they wreck a pond when they can simply not use the swim with it in is beyond me!
PS on spotting the thread i thought you had posted in the wrong section and it was referring to a country and western singer or boxer
A bit nippy yesterday in the field detecting yesterday i thought about putting a long sleeved t shirt on lol

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you
There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong
Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle
Whitby scallops caught by scottish boats best that money can buy,the nearer the shore they're dredged the better they taste
