As someone who has lost two mobiles to water whilst fishing, I'd like to know other people's ways to keep phones either waterproof or away from the water. It seems the plastic bag doesn't cut the mustard anymore.

Stick it under yer hat. Leaving it in yer pocket like you do is okay on land but is silly walking about in a river. Do we need a remedial sub forum? Just asking...

Can you still use an iPhone inside the cover Taterdu ? I have a Simms waterproof pouch - does what it says on the tin but can't swipe the screen to take a quick photo - more often than not the time I'm most likely to use it whilst out fishing too :(

The Simms one does hold a lot more than a phone though which is handy for beat maps, cash etc (and lighter when I smoked).

I got the Sony Experia Z1 this week and it's waterproof,

The phone is protected in up to 1.5m of water for up to 30 minutes.

But I also have this, [ame="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Samsung-Galaxy-S3-Mini-Waterproof-Case-BeachBuoy-with-Lifetime-Warranty-/121152010557?"]Waterproof-Case-BeachBuoy-with-Lifetime-Warranty[/ame]
