    So @Adee and I went fishing in the deep Madagascan sea. At random times we got to experience what has been (in my experience of many places around the world) the most natural and saturated marine life I have seen for ages.

    I have the full footage but shooting at 4K and with Fish Eye, I am still trying to figure out how to edit this dam thing into clips and the right format.

    Also I had a RED Lense filter on and I got some yellow tinge in some shots so trying to get that fixed to.

    In the mean time here are some stills of some of the dives - if only I could bring some back, saw some incredable things TONS of green dot file fish between the SPS (since they eat SPS makes sense) _ massive tangs, clowns of all sorts, chromis, super colorful dunno what they were look like bath water Neons but with yellow blue (Electric) and red, turtles, clams, zoas well everything :)

    Ill carry on updating this thread as I get through all the footage

    Sh1t I totally forgot about that!

    We went all the way to the northan tip by the Ge-morsh (Comoros islands), the base or last part of civalization we saw was Nosy Be. We fished all around the deserted Islands just the most incredible part of the world.

    The morning land wind at this time of the year though is proper...

    I caught a lot but @Adee caught a monster that followed his lure right off the rock ledge. The bigger fish were the sail fish and wahoooooooos
