Indonesia—Off the east coast of Sulawesi, on the bottom of the Lembeh Strait, the wide-eyed face of a foot-long stargazer emerges through black volcanic sand. These fish, named for the eyes atop their heads, ambush their prey.

Happy Father’s Day 2015!

Father’s Day has always been a special day to me, even before I was a dad. I didn’t knew my dad very well, but one thing I did know about him was that he was a hell of a fisherman. Throughout the 1970’s he was a skipper for a fishing boat called the Bahari. A lot of big fish were caught on that boat, but this yellowfin tuna was probably the most famous as it stood for a time as a world record.

I have few keepsakes of my dad, but the most prized of all is his old photo album showing off the fish he, his clients and his friends caught long before I was born. I never grow tired of looking through that album and conjuring up Hemingway-esque stories about each fish.

Typically a good quality drone will cost well over $1000, but Lily is now available for pre-order at $599 until July 15th.
