Pooh, and Poohs Revenge?
Is he going to start auctioning locks of hair and toe clipping so we can have our very own bit of cave diver?
As Pitlamp says above, it is an emergency search reel for cave diving. Geoff made it following the death of Ian Plant in a sump. If you lose the main line you can use it to relocate or use it to check out leads such as the King Pot inlet.
You should definitely not be using your search real for looking at leads - its for emergency use only!B
Yep, pretty much what Sam said.You've lost the line in zero visibility. You attach the line reel to a handy rock (some emergency line reels have a lead weight on it so you dont need to do this) and use this to find the line. This can be done using several methods - one of which is to head out in spokes like Sam mentioned. Another is to feed out a length of line and go around in a circle looking for the line until you think you've gone all the way around. Then feed out another length and go around again. Repeat until you've either found the line or run out of gas.Its really hard and is a last resort. Most import thing is to not loose the line in the first place.

The compass is one of the most important pieces of equipment for a cave diver.
