Entering their world.


 For my birthday back in October my better half purchased me a rather unexpected present, a GoPro Hero 5 Black, it was probably the last thing I'd have added to my angling arsenal, probably due to the cost but seeing as that was taken care of I had to get out and use it. It took me a while but whilst I'm still learning the features three months on I'm using it to spy on fish under water and also pulling stills from the under water videos I've shot.

 Although I haven't done much I have managed to cut some fairly decent images I feel and when recorded in 1080p and higher resolutions up to 4K the stills are pretty impressive, here are a few and at some point I will try to put some up on a YouTube page that I might create, I have to be brutally honest though I'm not massively keen on the video aspect on certain venues as I do not want to be giving anything away so most if not all of the filming will either be done on extremely well known fisheries, fisheries that are not known and location can not be made out and during the evening/night as locations will be almost impossible to find. Not that I am secret squirrel but the more that social media becomes the centre of angling as we know it I still feel there are some hidden gems which aren't known and want to keep it that way as I'm a greedy so and so.

    1. The GoPro's are impressive, I will manage to get some vids up at some point but at the moment just concentrating on trying to do some fishing.

  2. Hello James - excuse my ignorance but how do you get the shots - are you using some sort of adaption that allows the camera to be attached to say a landing net handle or are you getting in the water ? I have seen Nick speed with his camera on March fishing videos and it appears he attach to a pole ? Regards Derek

    1. Some of the footage is through release shots and others are recording using extension pole and attachment in areas where I know where the fish congregate, this winter being very dry has meant just about every river I fish in the south has been clear for large spells of the winter.
