I have an earlier model GoPro and I was never satisfied by the quality, yours looks much better. Are you using any enhancements or software to improve the video quality or reduce the "fish eye" effect?

One thing to look for when fishing any stream is the direction of current. A lot depends on what you are fishing as to how to fish a particular spot. Eddies nearly always hold trout the flow through the eddy determines how to fish the eddy. Many times the king of the pool is in the eddy.

Missed these two posts above.

Chaz you hit the nail on the head with what I was getting at by posting this. Most of these fish are out of the main current, facing random directions as they orient themselves to the eddy currents. It was surprising to me as I imagined more fish would hold along/around small rocks under or just on the edge of the main current. And, the whole "fish can't see you as well if you approach from downstream" theory falls apart if they are sitting in an eddy and facing downstream.

They can't see as well directly behind them- but in order to determine where that blind zone is, you need to know exactly where that fish is and where it's facing. Since getting close enough to find out will usually spook the fish, your best bet is still using other stealth techniques- staying low, casting from far away, using brush or trees for cover, etc.

If nothing else, the video is a reminder that even on a small stream, there's more going on than we sometimes think. There are a lot of details that you pick up on as you fish more of these streams. Whether or not you want to take the effort to use those details to your advantage and catch 25 6-inch fish instead of 20 is totally up to you.

henrydavid, I think the improvements you noticed are probably just a result of the newer model. I don't use any special software that would be able to improve the quality, but I do film on the 1080 setting (the highest available resolution on that model). Maybe older models only filmed in 720?
