Angling Trade was fortunate enough to take part in a pre-show fishing blast out of Jupiter, Florida, thanks to the folks at Costa, Simms, GoPro, and YETI. Joe Cermele, our-brother-in-arms with Field & Stream (he’s the fishing editor, and host of the popular “Hookshots” episodes found at fieldandstream.com) cut a nice video of our day playing with bonita, some mahi, and big sharks, using a new GoPro Hero 4 Session.
Our fishing partner was Ryan Chuckel, who works with GoPro (and caught his first albies on the fly like a champ) liked it so much, he sent it into the mother ship, and GoPro posted it on its global website… not a small feat, and pretty tall respect for the fishing community to get that kind of mainstream exposure.
It’s one thing to take cool videos and show them to ourselves, but even better to show the action aspects of fishing to the broader consumer audience. And Joe Cermele is doing that with “Hook Shots” with great aplomb. Be sure to check out his stuff when you can.
