Trusted Feefo Merchant

The Airflo wavehopper fly fishing vest is a fishing waistcoat which doubles as an inflatable lifevest. which fully meets rigorous SIO12402/5 standards. A Fishtec best seller this is a 'must have' accessory for anyone who fishes afloat, wades a river or cast from a lake bank... how much is your life worth?

Just like a normal fly fishing vest there are plenty of useful design features for the angler- D- rings, multiple pockets, and is cut for comfortable fly casting with no restriction of movement. In fact you wont notice this is a lifejacket at all! The automatic version inflates extremely rapidly from a 120 newton canister, and also features a manual pull cord.

Note: The Wavehopper Inflatable Fly Vest Lifejacket MUST be worn outside all other garments and is tailored this way; failure to do this may result in injury when activated.

Sizes Available: M, L, XL, XXL

Automatic Vest: F-WAVEHV-A-(+Size)
Replacement Re-arming kit: F-WAVEHV-CYL
Iain Barr says:

"I would never consider going afloat without my Wavehopper vest, it just isn’t worth the risk"

Frequently Asked Questions

What comes in the box?

Included with every FishSpy purchase is the FishSpy camera itself, a USB lead, one orange fin, one Foamy, one boom and the instruction and warranty information.

How long does the battery last?

The battery will last 4 hours, streaming live video to your portable device whilst recording the footage at the same time.

How much footage can I record?

FishSpy has a built in hard disk that will hold up to 7 hours of video. The video can be transferred to any other device by a USB lead. Videos stored on FishSpy itself can be managed/ deleted via the FishSpy app or control screen.

Do I need an Internet or phone signal for FishSpy to work?

No. FishSpy generates its own wifi signal which your portable device receives. There is no need to have a phone signal or access to the internet.

How deep can FishSpy be submerged?

It's guaranteed to perform at depths of up to 10m.

Will FishSpy transmit via Wi-Fi when fully submerged?

No - once submerged, FisySpy will lose its wifi connection to your device (wi-fi signals cannot be transmitted through water).

N.B. Your recording will continue whilst FishSpy is submerged, and will be ready for you to view when you re-connect FishSpy to your device once it's resurfaced.

How much does FishSpy weigh?

It weighs 90 grams so about the same weight as a large marker float.

What warranty is provided?

For complete peace of mind all FishSpy cameras are supplied with a 12 month warranty against manufacturing faults or defects. As you would expect this warranty excludes any accidental damage including but not limited to (water ingress through failing to lock the cap correctly, excessive force when tightening the locking ring, impact damage with a hard surface such as a rock or tree) or through natural wear and tear. Please follow the instructions and take care of your FishSpy and accessories because we cannot accept responsibility from incidental or consequential damages caused by the misuse of the FishSpy products or the accessories.

While fishing at a local trout lake, I sat down to change my fly. A split second later I fell backwards into the feeder stream because the wooden bench collapsed due to a damaged support. I was now upside down on my back with my feet in the air and my upper torso below the water. My automatic Wave ...Thank you for the feedback, great to hear that you are so pleased with the inflatable fly vest. We look forward to being of service in the future.
A must have item for boat anglersGreat, thank you for the feedback
if you wade every one should have one it saved my lifeGood to hear – thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback.
Comfortable to wear and when used as a fly vest has ample pockets etc. When needed as an automatic lifejacket it operates to perfection and is very easy to deflate and change the automatic cylinder. Even though I am an excellent swimmer I fish the deep water banks and dams knowing that if called up...Thank you so much for leaving this feedback and great to hear you are so happy!

pays to lose weight to get into a smaller size and save £100Thanks for your comments - you have had a great deal on your life jacket!! we have recently reduced the prices of the medium manual life jackets as we have limited stock.
Excellent No Comment
I thought this was pretty poor due to the unexpected weight of the vest. No hidden zingers. The two main pockets are flimsy and and the ones below them are not much better.This is disappointing to hear. I can see that you are a very good customer of ours so please get in touch if you would like to exchange this item to an alternative product.

All the best

Good service as usual, but one item out of stock, yet still let me order (and looked like in stock when placed order!?) No Comment
It's a great bit of kit, no more worrying about forgetting my life jacket No Comment
not tried it yet but looks good No Comment
Only bought a re-arming kit. No Comment
Good solid quality. I was little surprised by the extra weight but I suppose to be expected considering the additional components - inflation mechanism and bladder.
I've not had to test as yet but I hope I never have too :)

Haven't tried it yet but have transferred all of my equipment to the vest & find it comfortable to wear.It has so many"pockets"Fishtec" could hold a competition to find out how many there are.The only downside is that the vest could do with a few securing points for scissors etc.... No Comment
service was great cheers No Comment

Seems really good, but since it's main use is for boat fishing a version with fewer pockets etc. would be good. No Comment
