Just saw that on facebook, amazing.

I wrapped up a barnswallow in my leader last year while fishing a farm pond, does that count. Pulled him to shore, he wasn't hooked, untangled and on his way.

Same spot I saw a largemouth jump a clear foot out of the water after a diving swallow as well. Believe that or not.

Snakes, bats, small birds, owl, a muskrat, trees n branches, myself, people I have fished with.... But never an eagle. What kinda federal fine do you get for that?

I enjoyed the narration of the video.

Also, the video gave me some ideas regarding the local mergansers.

I had it happen with a heron once. But an eagle would be really cool!

HAHAHAHAHA that was awesome! Your voice cracks me up! I can only imagine what I would be saying.

Good thing you were using a nice reel with a good drag system to protect your delicate tippet. (:

Albatross only posted the video, he's not the guy in it. Come meet him at the JAM, I'm sure he'll introduce you to his friend Evan.

That is awesome footage. Did the eagle break the line or drop the fish? It would be interesting to land the fish after the eagle dropped it, but it did not look like he was going to give it up!

Had a bird pick my fly off the water last year on Pine Creek, it dropped it a second later.

I never caught a bat, but I released one that had taken a broken off fly hanging in a bush. Poor thing was just flapping around trying to get free. But that eagle, damn that was amazing.
