I had a great opportunity to spend a half day with some good friends, an outstanding dog and a great day on the water. Capt Tuck Scott, the head guide at Bay Street Outfitters in Beaufort put this video together. It was myself, Capt Tuck Scott, Capt Doug Gertis, and Doug's dog Macon. You can see who was the star of the video, go Macon.

Great video. Very well done with great quality. What kind of bird were you shooting. Marsh Hens?

They were marsh hens, sometimes called rails. Tuck did a great job putting everything together on that video. There were several segments in that video that were shot with an HD Hero mounted to a remote controlled boat. As you can see from the opening shot of the boat, that remote boat can really move and was keeping up with the skiff. The other ones done that way were following the dog on the retrieve, and the shot of me in the bow with the shotgun.

Way cool!!!!!! I was wondering how you got those shots on the retrieve.

If you watch close you can see the dog flair from the remote controlled boat as she turns with the bird.

We have a fly club in Beaufort, SC, that you might be interested in. Let me know when you get to town.

Thanks John. I've been following the club since this past March when I learned that I would be moving to the area. I'll be in Beaufort several times over the next several months to nail down a place to live and to cast to some schooling drum. I'm looking forward to it.
Hope you're having as good a trout season as we are here. Best in the last 15 years.
Thanks and I'll look you and the club up.
