Gears list to film your kayak fishing trips
We are all eager to keep tracks of our fishing trips and adventures on the water. The best way of course is to get some action cameras and start filming, right? But for a kayak, what solutions are available on the market?
As a beginner kayak angler, I tried to look for a simple yet not too expensive way to get my fishing action on camera!
After a quick search of the various options, here is my shopping list, categorised by the best specialised brands.
My Gear Wish list to Film my fishing trips
The GoPro Flex Jaws is one of the most versatile. It can be mounted on nearl anything you think of. and is really convenient to change filming position or angle in a few seconds. So if you look into buying such tool go for the GoPro version as it is really strong and durable. And you have the GoPro guarantee. 🙂
The Smatree Cap for GoPro and its quick release buckle mount make it easy to set up your GoPro to shoot at 1rst person views of your buddies fishing actions or your own.
The Floaty backdoor is a’ must-have’ accessory if you set up you camera on a pole or stick it on top of your kayak. For the forehead or chest straps, it might not be so comfortable as it is around 1″ thick and not so easy to position well on the strap to get the shooting right angle. But a must have when going on the water!
