    Default Tellico - Mother Nature was a Great Lady Today!!

    Watched DNR get set up to research and shoot a video to be released soon on tnwildside about the Hellbender population in the Tellico and it's impact on the eco-system.

    After assisting him in getting into his locked vehicle with the keys still in the ignition... he shared a bunch of valuable stream information. DanHicks - Public Relations Specialist for Tn. Dept. Of Natural Resources - Great guy!!

    I then proceeded to some great water.







    1st of many brought to the hand.



    Fly of the Day!!



    The water was great and 62 degrees.



    Mother Nature sure knows how to paint!!



    Another healthy fish.



    Look forward to everyones posts!!

    Smile Great Stuff, keep them coming

    My posts will be shy of pictures until I can replace my camera. Had a bad electronics week losing a GPS, and the camera finally died.

    I've been shooting some footage with a GoPro, but someone needs to teach me how to edit

    Looks like that was some pretty tight water you were fishing.

    Your posts make me want to leave the Smokies for some CNF time

    ducky,
    interesting statement ref. Go Pro. Dan the Pub. Relations Rep uses the Go Pro as his Go To piece of equipment. He is filling me in on the adjustments need based on his working and shooting with it to get rid of the fish eye/round eye effect.

    He had the Go Pro case with a lot of extras and he stated it was a must have.

    While at my sons varsity football game Friday night the team uses one to video the football games and absolutely love it.

    Please let me know anything you like / dislike. Where did you get yours and a deal if you found one. I will reciprocate.

    Breck,
    I was a big Go Pro Advocate when they first came out and I have the HD Hero 2. I must say that I am not that big on it now. It is very rugged and shoots very good video at close distances. The fish eye is annoying and very unnecessary for 95% of my uses. The video (Mp4) is very hard to edit on a PC. I have to convert to avi to do most of my edits. Walmart has a nice Fuji in the $200 range that shoots great video and pictures underwater. I have two fishing buddies that have it and it is great. Hope this helps.

    Most of the video and pictures in this movie were shot with the Fuji listed in the forum.

    Joe, Gratias (multas)!!

    Very nice and interesting spin on the thread. I wish I had known the cardinal was a close relative....I would have asked him to pose for a family portrait. Thank You.

    Shawn, this is the second time you have mentioned the camera vs. the GP. Done and done.

    I will attempt Wednesday to start using the camera as a source for video as

    you suggest. Your opinion is highly regarded by me. My only concern, how might the

    camera be operated other than just being held in the hand. Remote, staff, pole?

    Thank You Shawn - I will see you soon.

    Breck,
    This is one of the best tripods to carry for fly fishing. It is small enough to leave screwed in to the bottom of your camera. Although; I did lose one. They are super cheap and work great. I use it for still shots on rocks, night shots when the shutter speed is slow, filming underwater. The trick for underwater use is to bend one leg upstream and two legs downstream. Also; place a rock over the upstream leg to hold it in place. Then, just adjust your angle to make sure it is pointing in the correct area. I usually start my camera recording before I place it in the water and be mindful to not turn it off while installing.


    Also; I have a Gorilla Tripod I use at times when I want to wrap it around tree branches or try different angles. It does not work as well under water.

    I hope this helps. The GoPro is a great camera and I think you would enjoy it. However; the editing chores are excessive and hinder my productivity in using it. If you are a MAC guy; I think it would be less of a problem.


    Also; I made a LED lit boom I use when filming from my boat. You can make a bi-pod or a boom very easily out of pvc tubing. Search YouTube for videos on how to make your own camera bi-pod. There are some nice plans for making great booms that work fabulous and super cheap.

    Breck I like the Go Pro

    I'm figuring out how to edit, and my PC has no problem with the MP4

    The distortion was really bad when filming beach footage (too flat), but enjoy the 170 degree view opposed to a much smaller window that gives a good feel for the outdoors.

    I got mine when someone posted on a fourm about a groupon like site that had it for $120 that day, and I pulled the trigger immediately (limited stock).

    I like that I turn it on and forget it's there. You have to readjust it sometimes when you bang your head, but that's easy enough to work with

    I posted my first vid. I bought it primarily for kayaking, but really like it fishing
