The above two controllers show that all electric fishing equipment manufactured by Dr A T. Wortley under various company names will last and continue working for excess of 20 years. Furthermore all electric fishing boxes of any age made here can be repaired and updated at little cost when compared with new machines. The 21st century is littered with throw away products which quite often cannot be serviced or repaired. However it is comforting to acknowledge that some manufacturers still produce quality products which can be serviced, maintained and repaired for many years. Furthermore these economic and very effective machines will continue to provide useful service in the increasingly expensive field of electric fishing for many years to come.


 NOVEMBER 2018: NEW RANGE OF BACK PACKS: In line with the policy of continuous development of all fishing machines, ELECTRAFISH are pleased to announce the design and development of a new range of back packs. Two separate models will be available. Hitherto back packs currently often encounter difficulties when working in higher conductivity waters so the first model has been specifically designed to work very well in these waters. As in previous models the controls are easy to operate and set and both models can also be used as bankside fishing machines with long cable anodes and cathodes.


 SPECIAL OFFER: COMPLETE LAKE SETS FOR OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER 2018 ONLY. List price £5500, Offer price £3600. Please inquire for further details.


 April 2018: Any old back packs built by Electracatch International Ltd in Wolverhampton will be purchased for recycling at prices to be negotiated depending on whether we collect or they are sent by a carrier. No batteries will be accepted and it does not matter if the back pack is damaged or not operational. If interested, please send a mail to Alec at electrafish@btinternet.com
