Getting Deeper Into Fishing Technology

DPFFAP

If you have a keen angler to wrap an expensive Christmas gift for, then the Apple online store might have started stocking the right present for you.

Take a look at Deeper Fishfinder, the hi-tech solution to guarding against an empty net.

When cast out on to water, the 65mm diameter, ball-shaped Deeper floats on the surface takes a look around below, providing a comprehensive picture of water depth, water temperature and where it can spot some fish for you to catch.

All of the information is sent to shore by Bluetooth for display on an Apple or Android mobile phone or tablet appliance.

The 100 gram sphere fits readily in a tackle box and is tooled up with sonar that operates to a depth of 40 metres and can be used on lakes, rivers or at sea.

The key thing, though, is to use and secure a good line with it.

For a fish to get away is a punctured ego, for a Deeper to float off is a massive hole in the pocket.

It can be used from boats as well as from the shore.

An optional extra is a flexible clamp with an adjustable arm, to dangle the Deeper over the side of a craft and look for shoals of fish while gently cruising around the bay.

Then, as an added bonus for the truly online enthusiast, the Fishfinder App integrates with social media networks so that fishing stories and pictures can be instantly shared at the touch of a button.

The Deeper Fisherfinder is available from a range of online outlets at prices from about £150.

Mind you, a purist might consider that to use it is to cheat….
