FishSpy is a marker float housing a waterproof camera. Designed over two years by the team at Total Fishing Gear. Made and designed in the UK for carp anglers by carp anglers, it can transmit live and recorded underwater video footage using it’s own Wifi network to 80m in range. The benefits for hardcore carp anglers are primarily feature finding - working out bottom structure, finding weed free spots and silt beds, checking your rig, seeing if bait is present on the bottom and more. This will help to give carpers the edge on increasingly pressured waters, and ultimately save time and money. FishSpy users may also see cool stuff like carp feeding and interacting with their bait, thus giving an additional insight into their behaviour.
As one of the most dedicated and well know carp anglers on the UK scene (and a consultant with TF Gear) it was only natural for Dave Lane to be heavily involved with field testing FishSpy. At the show Dave and the development team will be on hand to explain how FishSpy works, what it offer carp anglers and share our experiences of using them on the bank. FishSpy cameras and accessories will also be available for sale from us direct over the show weekend.
There is a lots more information on our website www.fishspy.comand blog here:
Come to the show – and see what you’re missing!

Join CARPIN’ ON in 2015

Fish'n Canada

For the first time, Fish’n Canada television hosts Angelo Viola and Peter Bowman will be making the trek across the ocean to take part in the famed 2015 Carpin’ ON event.

Ang & Pete as they are more commonly referred to, will be manning Ontario’s Go Fish In Ontario booth and spreading the word about the phenomenal Carp fishing that exists half way around the world. They’ll discuss popular areas like Long Sault on the St Lawrence River and the Niagara river as well as not so popular areas like the Kawartha Lakes, Hamilton Harbour, Lakes Eire and Ontario and many more.

“Quite honestly” says Ang “there’s more fantastic Carp holding water here in Ontario than we know what to do with”!
“And the most surprising aspect of our Carp fishery” says Pete “is all of our available shoreline fishing areas are absolutely free to fish... no daily, weekly or annual fees. These spots are open to fish all day every day”.

If you want to talk Pike, Walleye, Muskie, Trout etc., Ang & Pete will gladly answer all
those questions as well.

ANDASPORT's First Bite


ANDA Technologies GmbH is a company located in Münich, Germany. We are the manufacturer firm primary interested in selling our award – winning product ANDA Bite Alarm. Company owner is Zeljko Miskatovic, a successful engineer. He introduced an innovation in the world of fishing with his father. Zeljko started his own company ANDA Technologies GmbH 2011. which initially was intended for hardware and software solutions for the big companies in the field of automotive industries. Due to his and father's great interest for fishing, he started thinking when all that could be developed for the modern cars, why not try to do something for anglers, as well.
