The Deeper Pro+ Christmas Bundle comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

THIS is the ultimate Christmas present from Deeper, perfectly timed for winter fishing, when the fish shoal up and are trickier to locate.

This bundle of easy-to-use fishing ‘tech’ features a Deeper Pro+ Smart Sonar, a Night Fishing Cover and a Smartphone Mount, allowing you to read what’s under the surface as you retrieve.

They’ve even included a Gerber Dime 12-tool Multi-Plier in the box, to get you out of tricky situations… all for just under £210!

If you’ve been holding back on buying one of these castable fish- and feature-finders, now is the time to invest.

For those that might not know, you attach these highly rated sonars to the end of your line and cast them out.

A highly accurate built-in GPS receiver then allows you to map your swim, revealing the contours of the bottom of the water on a smartphone or tablet, which you can then store for all future trips.

Weighing around 3.5 oz, it comes with a Wi-Fi connection, and has a casting range of up to 100 m and a depth range of up to 70 m.

You might want to step up your main line, to take the demands of repeated casting, and add a wire trace, especially if you’re on a pike water, to avoid a costly pike attack. The device offers instant readings on depth, bottom structure, temperature and fish location.

The Night Fishing Cover is designed for using in any weather conditions, including after dark, as a bright, flashing LED will glow through the translucent orange cover.

The Smartphone Mount can be mounted on your rod, best placed just above the butt, so that you can see exactly what is subsurface without having to use your hands.

The pocket-sized Gerber Dime has lots of tools, helping you to cut wire and line, bend the hooks on lures back into shape, open bottles and help with bankside repairs.

I think this is a well-thought-out, great-value gift.

Price: £209.99 from all Deeper retailers.
