Fly & Dive Drone Services Ltd Company Logo x350

Fly & Dive Drone Services

Fly and Dive Drone Services are a family run company based in Fleet, Hampshire that work across the UK. We specialise in providing bespoke photography, videography and sub-aquatic topography via the use of modern aerial and aquatic drone technology. We are fully licenced to carry out commercial aerial drone operations by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) with all necessary insurances by a trusted provider.

From the air, we can provide detailed 4k footage from a new perspective. Whether it’s for promotional purposes such as social media and websites or for planning and monitoring projects. We also have the ability to capture and livestream inspections with the option of virtual reality should you require it.

From the surface and below the water, we can inspect boats of all sizes and a variety of equipment used in aquaculture and fishery management such as nets, cages, pumps, aerators etc. Both aquatic drones are fitted with onboard sonar which allows us to scan the topography of a chosen waterbody. This is a perfect solution for fishery managers and anglers to acquire detailed mapping, identifying features such as depths, holes, hidden snags and for tracking fish activity.

Coming from a fishery background, we understand and appreciate the importance of biosecurity when it comes to aquaculture and fishery management. Our aquatic drones and all equipment that come into contact with water are disinfected with Virkon Aquatic, an effective and well known disinfectant throughout the industry. However, we are more than happy to disinfect onsite on our arrival.

The possibilities are only constrained by the law and your imagination. If it is too difficult, expensive or dangerous to put a camera where you need to, give us a call and allow our fleet of drones to help you.

Chris-Clemes-ENGLAND x500pxChris Clemes

We understand that a custom fly rod is a highly personal item and one which we are sure will soon become your favourite fishing companion.

Split cane fly rods, also known as bamboo fly rods, are often viewed as beautiful keepsakes, too often stored behind glass cases and admired rather than fished with. However those that have fished with them, know that this could never be farther from the truth.

Each Chris Clemes fly rod is hand split, planed and elegantly styled in the English tradition by our highly experienced expert rod makers. Most importantly, each rod which leaves our workshops is built to be fished, and to last for many years to come.
