Tippets: First Graphene Rod Built, Taking Fish Friendly Photos

Posted on May 29 2016

  • World champion angler Scott Mackenzie and engineer Gary Savage, who worked on heat shields for NASA space shuttles, say they have made the first graphene fishing rod. Graphene is a form of carbon and is many times stronger than steel. Via BBC.
  • The amount of time a fish is out of water and handled when an angler takes a photograph can have serious implications for the survival of the fish once released. GoPro cameras are a great solution to getting the best of both worlds, and Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions details how to use a GoPro to take fish-friendly photos in this recent video.
