Yak Fish Productions has been established since early 2010 with an objective to producing kayak fishing video clips and DVD. You Tube as been a big part of this with an ideal platform to base short video promotional clips produced.
About Yak Fish Productions - Shooting video footage from a kayak when going solo can offer plenty of challenges to Pro kayak angler Rob Fort. Three cameras are deployed and require setting up to allow for ease of use while operating the kayak. Rob also acts as the main camerman in most of the video clips but also uses others at times. The underwater footage really makes the whole viewing experience even more worth while all captured by Rob while freediving on a single breath of air. Our current projects include producing a New Zealand Kayak Fishing DVD with more You Tube clips also.
The Setup - We use the GoPro Hero HD cameras mounted on extention booms to capture everything to the sides and in front of Rob. As well as the GoPro's is one Cannon HD camcorder placed in a specialy designed camera and wireless mic housing. This is mounted on the front of the kayaks cockpit area that captures Rob's vocals and everything around and behind him.
Photo right: The GoPro Hero HD Camera is an ideal setup for kayak use and offers lots of different mounting options.
You will enjoy watching some of the experiences found during kayaking, fishing and diving so keep coming back to check for new release video clips. The following is a collection of what is available through our You Tube based channel NZkayakfishing. Enjoy
