The GoPro camera at work on Marie F

I am absolutely delighted with this video, not only with the content but also with the way it was filmed. My good friend John Bell brought his eighteen year old son Jason down for some Lyme Regis deep sea fishing and filming. Now Jason’s a fine chap and he arrived on the boat with his newly acquired birthday present – a GoPro.

It appears that everyone except me has heard of these cameras but just in case you haven’t, let me explain. They are a work of art and the size of a matchbox. This is the device that extreme sports people fix to their foreheads when they cycle, ski or paddle down terrifying terrain or water at high speeds.

Marie FNow to film the noble art of Lyme Regis mackerel fishing and Lyme Regis deep sea fishing this little camera is superb because it’s so small you don’t even notice you're being filmed. A wide angled lens takes in everything as long as the camera is aimed roughly in the right direction.

If you want to see more of what this thing can do –and I really don’t want this to sound like an advertisement– take a look at GoPro on YouTube and click on the top one that comes up under the title ' GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition’ ... over 20 million people have watched it.

When you have, you will know why. Amazing, wonderful and moving.
