Last year i made an extendable camera/go pro pole which fits within a flush mount rod holder but this limits the scope for filming angles. I occasionally like to grab the pole and jump in the water to get up close and personal with the local wildlife so require the camera pole to be removable. At the same time i want to be able to put the camera pole in lots of different angles for filming and photography.
Conditions were spot on for a launch at one of my favourite fishing spots. Kieren was keen but i had a limited time window to fish, so with a late afternoon tide we planned to fish the final 3 hours of the flooding tide to be in with the best chance of finding any fish. It was a decent sized tide and we would be fishing an exposed area of coastline so was looking forward to see how the Abaco handled.
Ive been using a fairly crude makeshift pole on which to mount my Go Pro HD Hero 2 for the last year but have finally got round to making a more suitable and versatile pole for the job. The idea isn't new with a few kayak fisherman having made their own so thought i would have a crack at making one suited to my needs - for use on the kayak and for use when snorkelling.....
