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.

bivvy is first class but could not put it up my self took 2 of us to pull it up maybe it will get easier.hope so. No Comment
Found it very difficult to set up as the instructions weren't that clear, for a twenty second fastest ever bivvy it took me over half an hour before I went onto you tube to watch a video! After watching that it was easy!
Haven't used it properly yet but it looks ideal for quick over nighters!

First time up it took a while but only takes a couple of minutes now. No Comment
Only used it the once so far, but found the build quality to be very good. Took a bit longer than 20 seconds to put up, but not much more than a couple of minutes. Felt very stable in quite brisk winds.
Plenty of room inside for my bedchair and all my gear.
Overall a very good quality bivvy and g...

I found the instruction manual a little brief, but after figuring things out for myself I was very happy with the Force 8 Bivvy. No Comment

Does exactly what it says No Comment
Bivvy is bigger than i thought so pleased with the space, quick to put up and down, well pleased with it. No Comment
I have now used this Bivvy and its great the build quality is very good, and with a little practice it does go up in less than a minute. When it was used I was on a 4 day 3 night session and it coped with wind rain and some sun admirably, The accomodation in the 2man is massive and would easily fit... No Comment
Very good bivvy. sufficient room for 2 with large bedchairs. No instruction issued but simple enough once you have put it up and down a couple of times. No Comment
my brother thinks the force 8 bivvy is the bees knees, and the reels are really good, No Comment
A Great bivves nice and big just what i wanted as i can get all my tackle in one place, as i am Disabled and do not like having tackle all over the place. God bLESS No Comment
This is my secon tf gear force 8 bivvy and it's so quick to put up, my mate couldn't afford a new one so I sold mine cheap and that's why I bought a new one No Comment
The TFG 8 Bivvy is really good value for money. 20 sec erection is achievable with practice. I've only used it once so far in good weather but am confirdent it will do all I ask of it. Particularly like that it is double skinned in the sleeping compartment. No Comment
I went for two man as I take my little girl with me, I would recommend this bivvy to any angler! It's very spacious and very easy to put up..does exactly what it's advertised as. Well worth every penny No Comment
Have not put it up yet, but at least it comes with a decent bag that I know I can put it back No Comment
excellent bivvy, put it up in garden first and took a few minutes to erect because instructions are not quite clear. but once mastered had it erected in no time on the bankside, nice and roomy and well made bivvy...... No Comment
Fast delivery, excellent service No Comment
This is the 2nd force 8 I have had. The 1st has been used & abused for quite a few years & is still ok but had the money so bought a new one. It's the warmest & most spacious bivvy on the market for the price. No Comment
Not used for fishing yet and the time to put it up seems very short but I hope to reduce it a lot, the instructions are not that good ( would be better in colour ) but when you know which parts are called what it should go up a lot faster. No Comment
I found that if you unpack your new Bivvy slowly and taking note of the instructions supplied.Erecting and repacking was a doddle.
Force 8 Bivvy is the future now.

trying out over 26-28 may. cant wait ,loads of extra room!! No Comment
Very easy and quick to put up and to take down. Really pleased with it. Plenty of room inside No Comment
The bivvys seems fine. I tried a 'test run' in the garden and it took a lot longer than what is advertised to put up. But, maybe with practice I might master it. I am worried though about how sturdy the 'Lever arm' is when erecting. I have a feeling this could be a weakness? No Comment
This bivvy is really spacious and simple to put up, just as described - can't fault it. No Comment
