The Bite on Replay

by Thomas Beutel

This morning I tried out a new toy, a Polaroid Cube+ clipped to my waders. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I’m pleased. The quality is better than I expected. And I got about 1 hour and 45 minutes of record time before the battery gave out.

My main goal was to get footage of my catches but those are really few and far between. But I did get a couple of bites. Bites are usually very fleeting and are more felt than seen. So it was interesting to be able to replay the bite. What registered to me as small bite was actually a bit more than I thought when I watched the video. It’s interesting how the mind remembers or doesn’t remember an event.

I look forward to using the Cube now on my morning fishing expeditions. And I’m looking forward to actually getting a catch on video.
