i have posted before in this thread about my thoughts on using a drone ...right tool in the right location / situation
personally i love drones but then i live in Spain and fish on 300+ acres waters so the drone can save a lot of time spent on swim / fish location
but i do get how people could become annoyed if fishing say a 2 acre water and people are flying all over the place with there drones
but i have just watched NashTV's / Samir's latest video on Orellana in Extremadura Spain and they have used a drone for fish location ....in 20 mins with a drone they have acheived something that eyes alone on the water would never have shown them so to me that is smart angling using the best that technology has to offer them
otherwise you may as well just piss in the wind when choosing a swim on Orellana its not for the faint hearted being
4863ha surface area and 90% is accessible by boat only !!!

Nah, you're thinking of a different Burgfield and a different Terry mate

Is that the Burghfield Common that has been caught on more than 1 occasion with the aid of a Baitboat....and the same Terry Hearn that used a Baitboat to catch the Parrot from Wasing...

I can see what you're getting at, to be fair, using a boat is allowed but isn't access all areas like you might be thinking and doesn't add to my success rate in the slightest, prolly coz I'm s4it?

I'm still on the fence with it all. I've never ever used one before and never had the inclination to use one untill this season. I'll see this season out and weigh it all up whether I'll continue using it or not. I'll not go into details of the real reason I'm using a boat, just that it's non fishing related and saved my sanity by not casting out. If you were fishing the same place as me last year, you'd deffo want me to be using a boat instead of a spomb and not coz I can't use a spomb - apart from blowing loads up last season, there's that - or excessive bait use either, cryptic I know

You needn't to of edited your post, I got got what you were saying and agree with the sentiments

A drone as tempting as they are for very big waters, let's say an arbitrary 100+ acres, for me, they're a step too far, I mean, how easy do you want it, just turn the whole thing into a video game and remove the hunting aspect from it all. Your captures just end up as statistics instead of tales of tragic losses and epic captures. I remember Terry Hearn recounting snippets of one of his mates attempts at capturing the Burgfield Common and the list of things that went tits up for him along the way, that certainly won't be the case with a drone other than some battery packs going belly up... rivetting.

Oh I agree mate, If I spot one being used to find kippers or spots anywhere near me it'll be target practice regardless of rules.

Fair comment. Live and let live as long as they don't mind me as a sovereign angler with control of my borders defending my airspace from illegal immigrants. See, us remainers can adapt.

Not sure he knows what he disagrees with tbh. This is the guy that gets a buzz from "rules that massively handicap the angler" yet uses a bait boat.

End of the day drones are cheating. We all know it. Some ignore it. It's fair play, each to their own and all that. As long as they don't interfere with anglers I can't see problem. Most half decent waters ban them anyway.

Have reworded the beginning of my post 97. Hadn't done a good job on that. Is that what you disagreed with Tee Cee?

Can't make the connection between emergency rescue services use of drones to save life which is marvellous, along with all other tech used for the same and other appropriate purposes.
I cannot agree to their totally inappropriate use in carp angling. It disrespects the art of angling and totally disrespects the fish.
