Fly Fishing photo

Call me crazy, but does anyone really need a waterproof aerial drone with sonar, bait carrier, and a camera? When this kickstarter project came across my desk I had to do a double take as I thought it was an elaborate hoax. But no… as if you didn’t have enough crap to deal with when you went fishing. If you backed this project you’d have to lug around a remote control, drone, “line flier pod”, fish scout pod, and camera adapter along with everything else you need to go fishing.

Now, don’t get me wrong I have nothing against fish finders, drones (I’m starting to use one for for photo work) or any of that other stuff, but this is simply insane. With just three backers thus far I’d say most people agree with me. I do see the merit if this thing could indeed lift huge chunks of bait out past the breakers shark fishing from the beach, but something tells me that isn’t possible.

If you need a good laugh, head on over to the Kickstarter page and check it out. Happy Friday.
