Thanks. I got the footage video-fishing using an early-model Aqua-Vu hooked up to a Sony TRV350 camcorder. There's perfect holes in the rubber housing to secure a long piece of clothes hanger wire and leave a foot or two of wire extending at a 45% angle above the camera lens. I started out using downrigger releases to hold the line but now I just use a two-inch piece of plastic tubing from the hardware store, bend the end of the wire double, cram one end of the tube over it and put a sinker on the line and cram it into the other end. The hit usually pops the sinker out.
When good cheap color underwater cameras become available, I expect video-fishing to be a lot more popular. I think the red still frame in this movie (colored using an IMac, the enlarging photos is done using the iMac's Ken Burns Effect) shows the eyes and teeth better than the original but natural would probably be better.

If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
