It will make those big browns at the dam all look like 18” fish. But don’t be fooled byBig T’s photos as he’s built like Sasquatch and even a 18” fish will look like a SNIT. (Standard nine inch trout)
My phone and keys are in two ziploc bags tucked away in my fleece wader pants and I don’t want to risk my phone getting wet. Started thinking what I really needed was a cheap point and shoot (more stuff of course). Long story short I found a used ultra compact Canon 7MP with battery and charger for $24 shipped on eBay. With the advent of camera phones the market for point and shoot is in the tank.

If you want to carry your phone… Tethered of course, I fully support Lifeproof cases! Dropped my phone off a dock on Lake Oconee… Swam around for over 10 minutes while my daughter’s best friend called me repeatedly to try to find it… Finally saw the glow in 11ft of murky green water. Got the phone out of the case and it was bone dry! I also don’t think twice about dropping my phone anymore.

(The preceding statement was made by an actual customer, and not by a paid spokesperson… However if life proof wants to send him a supply of free cases, He would gladly except)

Second the Lifeproof. Debated them versus other waterproof cases for a bit but then just went with the best. It's protecting a $400~ phone, I can spare 50 for a case.

Plus, I can get some awesome underwater shots and not have to worry at all about it getting wet.
