I do a lot of five-hour trips over the winter and even the summer months due to school hours. I’ve found that the deeper has saved me so much time. There is no point in fishing in the wrong spot for five hours. It’s best to be in the right spot for two hours and spend the other three looking for fish. If you fish a lake like I do, the chances of a fish giving away its location in late morning to early afternoon are zero.
I have already mapped the lake and generally have an idea where the fish may be but there is still a lot of water to cover in such a short time.
I have solved this by carrying the deeper with me on these short trips and then spend some time looking for the fish. This can be straightaway or take a couple of hour’s but results in a carp or two.
My best result was on a winters day, I found a group of fish and out of interest I carried on looking for more for about an hour. I didn’t find anything. So, despite the swim being underwater and lucky for me I had some wellies in the car.
I made up a couple of tiny PVA bag and flicked out two baits on the spot.
and within an hour, I had banked a 30+ and near 20.
This certainly goes to show that you can save yourself a lot of time and bank some cracking fish on short trips using the Deeper.
Hope this helps

I would like to give a brief snap shot of my life and introduce myself;
My name is Richard Handel and was born in 1965 in Suffolk. I have worked as a UK Operation & Intermodule Manager for a shipping company. I live in Hampshire now and am married with 2 young children, both girls so I am a bit outnumbered even the cat is a girl!
I have been fishing since I was about 7 years old. I started on small local rivers in Suffolk, then moved onto gravel pits and then carp fishing. My personal best is a 39.08 mirror, over recent years I have started river fishing again, on the Hampshire Avon, this is a nice break from the carp lakes.
My life has turned a big corner this year, the company I was working for relocated their Operation centre to Estonia. I was offered a job at the head office in London. This would have meant a 5 day commute and working in Stratford. As a family, we did not fancy this, as I would hardly spend any time with the children (and the Mrs). So after 22.5 years, I was given a nice redundancy package and with my wife is working full time. I became the house husband.
This has meant a complete turn around in my fishing, as I can pick and choose when I go. I have found a splendid new syndicate to fish this year, which includes 5 lakes and some 8 miles of river with only 150 members. It's an amazing change to the way I am able to fish.
I am now trying to start my own tackle business and make a bit of a name for myself in the world of fishing, as I have retired from real work.
