This is basically a test video for the GoPro Hero3 Black Edition. I've never edited any video before, so this is a pretty weak effort. Once it warms up, I'll get my Canon DSLR set up on a tri-pod for additional angles and better quality in addition to stills of worthwhile fish. The GoPro still shots don't even compete with my iPhone 5.

As far as the GoPro video, the first three fish were filmed using 960p at 48FPS and the fourth was filmed using 720p at 120FPS. YouTube won't be able to distinguish too much and the uncompressed footage is significantly better. I have footage in almost every option except the WVGA, which I will try for slow motion.

All fish were caught on a gold bead head midge. Very simple tie: just a scud hook with a bead, some thread or floss, and a little black dubbing near the head. Sizes 14, 16 and 18 have worked when the temperature has cooperated. Haven't tried smaller, but I definitely should. I don't have any beads small enough yet and putting lead on a size 18, 20, 22, or 24 is pretty tough. Any tips would be appreciated...

Footage is from January 16th and 18th of 2013. Fished the 17th too, but only caught one fish on my second cast before I even had the cam set up. In cold weather, the batteries go quick and I try to save them until I know what the fish are hitting. I only have one spare battery so far and no BacPac. I do have a 12 volt battery which is able to connect to the car adapter and charge everything, but haven't needed to yet.
