Without doubt, the best fishing video I've watched all winter. I like your self filming technique. My favorite is your addition of stills. Those are some great shots. Very inspiring.

I'll file that one away for my next trip.
Glad you enjoyed! Cheers

Well I guess that rules out the thrash metal soundtrack I chose for the next one.

High praise, thank you! I tend to be hyper self critical so don't agree, but it's still nice to hear.

Okay, you want unpolished and silly, watch this LOL! Filmed last fall at Echoing Lake. (you need to crank the volume up to hear exactly what Chris is saying near the end. )

Dick,

That is a good video. I thought you would have looked a little bigger on film.

What type of mic are you using for the voice over? Just a suggestion, but you might wnt to look into using a mic specifically for voiceovers, that way you do not get an echo or sound like you are talking in a box. Also, I would suggest a wind cover if you do not have one for your camera and even then it can be tough with wind. Rode makes some good ones. Now a days, the things that separate good youtube videos from just ok ones is the audio. Everyone has great video, but the audio is key. I watch a ton of youtube videos, I definitely liked your story line and thought it had a good theme, shore up the audio and you will be good to go! Nice Job!

I really enjoyed the video but have to agree about the audio, especially early in the segment. I look forward to future videos.

I had a small boom mic on my DSLR for the voice overs. The guy in the boat with me filming was using some kind of high end camcorder with a gigantic fur covered boom mic. You're 100% right of course, and I agree with everything you said. Like I said, first attempt. Whether there's a second remains to be seen, but I'm hopeful!

Thanks, and I do agree with you, the audio was a sore point with me.

Chris found it years ago at another outpost camp and always bring it along now for good luck.

The Golden Plunger sounds prodigious, kudos to him.
