GoFish Camera Kickstarter

I’ve always been a fan of underwater fishing footage. I even started making my own housing to put my GoPro in, but this little camera looks like a much better idea at a fraction of the cost of a GoPro.

With 275 backers and only 24 days ago, this project is very close to being fully funded. I have personally pledged money to this project and I am pumped to see the final product. If you want to fund this project and get your own GoFish Camera, visit Kickstarter!

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!
