It looks like we just missed their Kickstarter campaign, but they were able to raise over $55k to help bring this project to life.

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.

Don’t forget to hug your dad!

Hello Lily

There is no shortage of cool drones out there these days, but the Lily camera has taken many of the best features and combines them into one cute little package. This happy little drone will follow its user around but can also be controlled via a your cell phone. I can already see huge potential for filming our fishing adventures!

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