Thomas & Holger from Percherry are very well known for capturing the best photos of their fish from the belly boats. In this short blog they share a couple of tips that will help you get the best pictures to share
It goes without saying after the mount to hold your cameras is sorted then next 2 most important things are to be aware of the suns position, always if possible make sure it is facing you, taking the effort to reposition your belly boat for better light will result in a fantastic image without shadows.
Pay attention to the lens for water or dirt and always carry a dry cloth somewhere to wipe the lens if it does get water on it. Smile – don’t forget to smile…after all fishing is meant to be relaxing and fun, your photo should make people want to be there where you are!
Before you share your image take a moment to do some basic editing. Cropping the image even subtly can bring the viewer into the story more then if you appear far away as you can when using a GoPro in wide-angle for the image. Sometimes adding a filter can enhance your image and make it pop that little more. This can all be done on the phone using any app you decide to choose, there are many and most of the free versions allow fantastic edit capability…remember simple is better, getting to fancy with filters and adjustments can take away from the image and the moment.
We at Percherry specialize in catching perch from the belly boat. Perch is our great passion. So we have been able to catch specimens well over the magic limit of 50cm. We have already caught fishes of 54cm, 55cm and 56cm and hold the current Dutch perch record with 56,5 cm and 3,05 kg
We are also working with Float Plus to further develop and promote the electric drive for belly boats and develop innovative products for the bellyboat sector. We also put together an annual competition team and have been able to achieve the following successes since 2018:
