Vicarious Fishing


Dylan headed back to the trout pond on Wednesday, I didn't join him but they have a live webcam so I left it on in the office. I missed Dyl catching (he tells me he did - but where's the proof? :-) but I did see a few others hooked up - vicarious fishing!


Pretty interesting & I'll probably leave it on in the background again. Made me wonder about other venues with a live feed - possibly make a feed that flicks between them or even a screensaver. If you know of any fishing webcams please pop a link in the comments - cheers.


And if you missed it; over the Christmas break James added double barbel number 11 of 40 to his epic barbel challenge - it's probably old news now but the blog post is here.

  1. As one who's school reports all read "Easily distracted", I don't think live feed fishing cameras would be conducive to productivity. ;o)

    1. There was a ‘slight dip’ in productivity I’ll admit - don’t think I actually got anything done until it went dark - perhaps this isn’t my best idea :-)

  2. Someone at my work told us all about a penguin live feed camera at Edinburgh Zoo - Don't think much work was done that week........

    1. Watching penguins would be far too distracting - tries to resist Googling the Penguin Cam...

    1. When I lived in Cornwall on the south coast we used to phone a mate on the north coast to find out what the surf was doing - how times have changed!

    1. Sometimes watch Savage Gear live on Facebook, they never seem to catch anything. Oh, and Exotic Fishing Thailand - they normally hook up to a good fish. I’ll have a look at MLTF - cheers.
