27 Sound recordist operation: pole operation

Working with a gun mic on a fish pole (Figure 27.1(a),(b)) is an extremely flexible method of operation, and often the quickest means of placing the mic in the desired position. However, as mentioned earlier, assistance is not always available/affordable as and when you like, so as well as operating the mixer, you'll have to be able to manoeuvre the pole at the same time. Depending on circumstances, you can either work with one hand on the mixer and the other hand holding the pole with one end tucked under you arm, or wedged against your body; or you can hold the pole with both hands.
