I also had an idea to build a camera boom for my kayak last week. So a trip to the in-laws for lunch today provided an opportunity to access some tools I don’t possess, namely a dremel and a vice. Game on and another job to be done when I was in the mood.
Scotty 280 mount,M6 fine thread bolt, wingnuts/bolts, GoPro mount,
I took the dremel to the Scotty mount and took off the part that
holds the rod leaving a flush surface. I drilled three holes and fitted bolts
and wingnuts to hold the bar in place. The bar was shrink tubed before I
started. The rod holder slots into the Scotty 438 gear head track adaptor on
the GT175 rails on the yak. I’ll fit end caps when I source them to provide a
tidy finish. I'm not 100% sure about the wingnuts as I can see loose braid catching on them. I will probably change them out for nuts.

A fairly difficult day lay ahead and the fish were hard to
find. I fished for seven hours , covered a lot of ground moving numerous times making the changes as I
went. Some worked, some didn’t, the usual I suppose. Pink made the trout wink though ,
my wife’s nail varnish did a great job on two of my lures which scored for me.
