I use the Fishguard and the complete set up costs less than 1 of my reels.
Why did I invest in it, i can handle myself as an Ex Army Commando Sgt, so why bother, i don’t like surprises and for me this eliminates any un wanted company as i am forewarned of anyone heading towards me, as the sensors are set in way you wouldn’t know they are there so you can’t nick them. Once that beam is triggered, and animals won’t trigger them if set at the correct height, I’m instantly notified giving me time to get out and wait, the main light illuminates if i want it to, or the ambient light will come on if i approach my rods.
It’s a deterrent that works.
I have Fishguard, and after two nasty experiences, I would not fish without it. It works perfectly and gives me peace of mind.
I’ve now caught two people snooping around my truck that shouldn’t have been there. “Oh, I thought it was my mates!”… no you didn’t. He was quite surprised to see me standing next to him, with his forehead pressed gainst the rear windows. Ask those who have lost all their irreplacable tackle worth *many* £1000’s, if they think it’s good value and money well spent for a few £100, which face it, given the carp tax is a small pile of bait and a few spools of braid that you’ll throw in to blank 🤣?
Finally got out fishing and used the Fishguard this week. Very impressed, excellent build quality even down to the box it comes in and the storage bag. I used the growling dog setting and the volume is perfect even on the highest setting it’s enough to get you up but not disturb the lakes other anglers. The sensitivity is bang on and was not set off by foliage or dog sized rats! Yes it’s expensive and I thought what have I done buying this! But for that extra piece of mind it gave me to sleep easy on a lake that’s got previous for thieving scumbags it’s worth it.
In all, brilliant bit of kit, nothing else like it on the market, excellent service from Fishguard, you won’t be disappointed 👍
