yeah , but a bite alarm doesnt really help you catch any more fish, it just alows us to have a kip after the 4th cheese toasty in the monkey toaster,

The way I see it all technologies are just angling aids to a greater or lesser degree, be it alarms, bait boats, Deepers etc the one thing they will never replace is watercraft IMO

BUT

If you have a Drone then who needs watercraft, just fly around till you find the fish

To be honest if Iím getting away fishing itís usually to get away from all the technology and distractions of everyday life.

Agree it is disrespectful to the fish and the spirit and soul of angling. Only had a problem once, some numpty kept sending one low and slow and hovering at eye level in front of me. Couple of pouches of gravel solved it, didn't hit it, didn't care, just go away. They have no place on fisheries.

I think I recall Mr Crabtree getting upset over how the fixed spool reel was removing the skill from casting, but I could be misremembering.

will be interesting to see in 2031 when terrys 4th book will come out if he will still be jumping up/down the trees the whole day or he will just be drinking tea in his bivvy and looking on screen where the fish are

Its souless carping and a total disregard for other anglers space.

The whole of life has become a big cheat; politicians, business, social media, elections, referendums, footballers, driving standards, carp fishing, you name it... Unfortunately many values have changed during the last decade or so, and that ainít rose tinted spectacles; the soul has been lost from many things in pursuit of one aspect, MONEY...

I can just see groups of people setting off drones from the car park in order to see what swims are free....
I want piece and quiet so I would be far from the car park...in the not too distant future I can see these drones
Hovering in front of my bivvy door cause these nuggets in the car park will wanna see who you are....some people using these drones wouldn't think twice about dropping a load of bait right in your swim when they know your a mile away......I say ban them

Is it possible to fit boat to air missiles to bait boats and air to sea torpedoes to drones? That would make life interesting.

Of course, both RC items have their place but it's the tossers that think they are 'must-haves' that are the problem.
