Something fishy going on? Carp anglers will soon be able to provide proof of the one that got away

A REVOLUTIONARY new underwater gadget, which can stream live footage onto a smartphone as you fish, is set to be catch of the day.

For the first time ever, carp anglers will be able to stream live footage straight to their mobile device as they fish via an underwater camera cleverly hidden in a marker float, thanks to the new Fish-Spy.

Fish-Spy’s streaming technology gives anglers the opportunity to quickly identify whether they are fishing in the wrong place or if bait is incorrectly presented – critical to successful carp fishing. It also captures and records underwater footage, providing up to seven hours of recording time.

The game-changing device, with the potential to transform the sport of carp fishing, was designed by expert anglers at Total Fishing Gear and took three years of development.

Streamed to your device via an inbuilt private Wi-Fi transmitter, crystal clear video allows users to see exactly what is happening under water. It is easy to use and requires no networked phone signal or internet connection.

Fish-Spy say their device could help even seasoned fishermen improve their skills at hooking a fish. Because the camera is incorporated into a marker float, it can be recovered even if a fishing line breaks.

Due for release in late October 2015, priced GBP249.95, Fish-Spy can be purchased from and Total Fish Gear stockists.

Packed with a host of features, such as remote playback and built in shareability, Fish-Spy also allows you to mark live action, so you can review highlights later. Featuring a 100m range, this market first will truly let you see what you’re missing.

Fish-Spy managing director Rob Williams said: “Fish-Spy is aimed at serious carp fishermen, who are looking for the best ways to improve their fishing experience and expertise.

“The best thing about Fish-Spy is that you can continue to fish the way you always have, but it adds a whole new dimension to the experience. We believe it will genuinely help you catch fish - and many more of them. You can easily check that your bait is set up correctly in real time and, as Fish-Spy records footage, you can also prove to your mates that you weren’t lying about the one that got away.”

He added: “We wanted to make the product as simple to use as possible. One of the biggest complaints within fishing is that people spend ages trying to find fishing features and then present bait perfectly. Tackle can get caught in weeds and it’s always been impossible to know what’s down there when you put your bait in the water. Fish-Spy puts an end to this problem.

“You simply cast your line and the submerged camera embedded in your float does the rest. Then you can get on with the real fun of fishing, saving endless hours of frustration. If you’re into carp fishing, Fish-Spy will change your experience forever.”
