    Cheers John,not sure about a head mount ,it might get annoying ,but would probably take a better video.

    Easky (Andrew) seems to use a chest harness, his videos and recordings are top class quality.

    Check them out on YouTube .you will find with a head one it's like a nodding dog left right left right all the time but with a chest one it's more central just keep hands out of the way

    Both have pros and cons - chest I find doesn't get in the way and is more unobtrusive, line can occasionally get wrapped and noise can be an issue. Also easier to see buttons, although newer models have wifi via mobile. Possibly more prone to splashing.

    Head mount does get a lot more heads nodding and movement which can get annoying when watching back, but generally quieter and less banging against things. You can look 'like you have a toaster' on your head. Hard to see buttons and know if there is water on lens or its steaming up. Potentially safer from getting a dunking if you take waterproof back off for better audio pickup

    I use the 'chesty' as in balance prefer it, but each to there own. Head mount usually comes with it, so you can see how you go before buying the chest mount as well.

    Hope this helps and look forward to seeing some of your footage
    so much fishing, so little time

    Cheers Easky ,I think i'll get a chest mount ,and I have lots of footage of a salty kind of silver,but it mightn't be appreciated on here.

    Another vote for the chest harness. Only just started using the gopro but the chesty is quite comfortable and a handy way to bring the the camera around. Wear it under your wading jackets and just be careful nothing on your jacket blocks your view. Happy shooting! (oh and do share your salty silver videos please!!)

    Surely you mean over your wading jacket reddie ,if not,all you get is an hour of the back of a YKK zip,and when I get better broadband i'll stick up some Bass porn in the saltwater fishing thread.I'm currently getting 0.87mb download and 0.15 upload speeds,i'd say its better in Somalia.
