Fishing Rod with Underwater Video Camera – FishEyes Review

Growing up in the city and being the youngest of four girls we just didn’t do a lot of outdoor activities such as fishing, boating or camping. Well when I started dating my hubby I was about to start “livin” as he put it.  You see, he grew up in the country and his family fished, went hunting, camped whenever the weather would allow it so I quickly had to adjust to what my outdoor activities would include now for me and our future family.

One of the outdoor activities that I immediately liked to do with my hubby is fishing. T-boy also loves to go fishing with us and we have found it to be a fun activity for our family.  While I do love going fishing I have at times wished I could see what is going on in the water below me since sometimes it feels like there aren’t any fish in the lake at all (patience is not my strong suit).  When I came across the FishEyes Rod and Reel with underwater video camera by Nextsport I immediately was intrigued!

T-boy was very excited to try out the Fisheyes Rod and Reel at the lake

FishEyes Rod and Reel Review

Now spend your time bringing in more fish than ever! Great for dock, lake or even ocean fishing! Catch more fish or just to explore underwater!  Adults and kids alike will love to use the FishEyes Rod & Reel with Underwater Video Camera on their next fishing trip!  T-boy was the talk of the dock when we took the FishEyes Rod out–I think every single person (child and adult) came over to us to see how well it worked!

I really think that the FishEyes Rod and Reel is a fabulous product for active outdoor families that love to fish and explore in the water.  We not only used our FishEyes Rod and Reel in the lake but also in the Ocean while on vacation and also just for fun in the pool to see ourselves swimming!  T-boy was very impressed with how well he could really see the fish and wildlife below him and how easy it was to use, hubby and I agreed.  This is not only a toy but also a learning tool for children!   The unit does come with attachments so that you can set up the FishEyes Rod and Reel to cast to catch fish as well.  Fun and Functional the FishEyes Rod and Reel has added hours of enjoyment on the water for not only our kids but us as well.

Not only fun to watch the fish but great to catch them too!
