 In Kayak Fishing, Videos

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.
