It always gives me a little joy to come home and wash the salt off my camera after the rods, reels, and gear are done. Just something about it! The underwater shots, although I should take more, are fun too. Good to 17 feet.
I agree though, a little bigger than I would like but the trade offs are favorable. I am going to switch the neon red strap they give you for something a little more subtle for the flats.
