I just might be able to get over my hatred of fishing thanks to the FishEyes fishing rod. FisEyes is a fishing rod with a video camera and monitor attached onto it that lets you peer into the murky waters below and see whether there are any fish in the area.
The line used with the FishEyes fishing rod isn't actually a line at all, it's a power cable. The cable has a maximum depth of 25-feet, with no quoted max test. As awesome as the FishEyes fishing rod seems, I don't think you could actually use it to fish, as you run the risk of breaking a very expensive fishing item ($80) every time you drop your line in.
