Ok let me clarify. First im not talking about hovering over someone to watch them fish. Lots of flyfishing films are made using drones. It think it was the delaware river club used a phantom to film a commercial to promote their business. I would never fly around someone or bother them while they are fishing. and as far as the laws go i am registered with the FAA and i am in the process of getting a 107 pilots license for commercial use.

As far as the laws it is not illegal to fly in state land air space. Their aren't any regulations until you approach within 5 miles of an airport or helipad. Then you need FAA clearance to fly. Some state parks are banning landing and taking off on state land but it's not a law (at this time). They don't own the airspace or they could say an airplane can't fly over. I am asking if anyone has used one to capture themselves fishing or their friends or people who apporve of it.

Having said that, there is some interesting drone footage of the Susky river on one of the recent WW threads. The filmography was indeed well done and, if you haven't watched that, it might offer some angles or insights with respect to drone position etc.


Yes absolutely thank you. I would never use this on penns during the green drake hatch or near anyone for that matter. I appreciate solitude as as much if not more than anyone on here. However, i have fished many times with not a sole around so i was just wondering if anyone has done it. I typically fly 300 feet in altitude and the drone i have you can't even hear or know it's there most of the time.

Do you have FAA clearance ? If not you can't sue whoever shoots it down.


My drone is registered with the FAA. You don't need clearance unless you are in a restricted area. If someone shoots it down it's illegal at this time. I am a responsible pilot i know the laws and restrictions. Their is legislation in the works. I don't plan on flying around people or animals or anywhere without consent.

I heard that there's a good location down by the Airport...It's stocked with planes.

The SGL rule doesn't say you can't fly airplanes or other form of aircrafts over state game lands. It says that the operation, control, launching, and retrieval of drones on game lands is prohibited. So you'd be within the regulation to launch or operate a drone from private property or state forest land beside SGL. But you can't be on SGL when you do it. Only the FAA can control the airspace, but the PA game commission can control what you do from the ground.

Similar with state parks, except there are six parks with designated drone fields where you can operate drones. I'm not sure where you get the idea that "some" state parks are banning operations. All but six state parks have bans on operating drones from within the state park.

SlingerFlyRods has posted some footage periodically; here is a blog post with some of that footage.

Unless you make it look like a giant, mutated Hex, I think you get it shot down based on the feedback above... Have fun!

I'd suggest filming guys fishings to daytime sulphur hatch between the gentleman's club and the tailout of barking dog. You will be a crowd favorite. Lol


Oh yea! That surely would be a crowd pleaser. I'm surely the dry fly guys (me included) would just love to have a drone hovering over the rising fish and follow the drift of the fly as it floats down river.

It is a federal crime to shoot down aircraft, and this week, the FAA confirmed that that includes drones. This is great news for anyone who has a drone, and for anyone who doesn’t want errant bullets falling from the sky, and it’s bad news for anyone eager to pump a quadcopter full of lead.

yeah,must be tough to get those little chutes to open but would think it should be open season on anyone disturbing one of the big reasons flyfishing is so special--so peaceful out there.

Reading comprehension on this forum is lacking at times lol. for the 100th time my post was not about going and disturbing anglers on busy streams while they are flyfishing. Not even going to explain what i was asking for its pointless lol. When i make a video i will post here and show you what i mean. It will be more about videography of the area with a few shots of either me or my friends or family fishing. a good video is short maybe 1 to 3 minutes long. It has nothing to do with harrassing anglers or landowners.

Don't forget most of guys fly fishing are zen masters and the specific way they enjoy the water is acceptable way.

You might get better video if you operate the drone from a kayak. If you do, though, be sure you don't tether your dog to the yak. He'll disturb the controls much less if you just let him run free on the bank.

In all seriousness, enjoy your time on (and above) the water! I am sure the footage will be very cool and I'll enjoy seeing it.

This whole kerfuffle reminds me of the time my friends got married at Fort Hunter along the Susquehanna river. Beautiful vista. I delayed the wedding procession 5 minutes to let a group of 20 tubers float by. They were enjoying a warm July day in the sun with a cooler of beers. Had no idea of the solemnity on the bluff above them. No harm was done.

One of the watershed groups I am associated with was doing a professional film about the watershed that included filming fly fishermen at a plunge pool below a dam. One of the fly fishermen snagged the drone on his back cat and it went out of control and tumbled into the pool with severe damage. At first I was jealous of the guy picked to do the casting, but after the mess that evolved I'm glad I wasn't.
