    Caught without a reel! The angler uses a cane rod and the line is gathered on a wooden frame.

    Definitely one of the stranger "fishing" videos I have seen in awhile.

    I think the fish was kept, whether to be mounted or eaten, I'm not sure.

    I watched for a while and then skipped forward....then said..."wait...where is his rod and why is he swimming with his face under water?"....then went back and ended up watching the while thing.
    Awesome....confusing....weird.....outstanding fish though. If I were there in person, I probably would have been dying laughing when he started literally swimming.

    It reminded me of the Blair Witch project when he was running. Amazing fish though. I wonder what country it was caught in. In some European countries it's actually illegal to catch and release.

    That was one helluva fish...and one freakin' amazing effort to land it. Thanks for sharing it, silvercreek.

    The dude has mad wading skills with his sneakers on. I would have been ass over tea kettle multiple times not to mention in cardiac arrest running after that fish like that.

    Germany and Switzerland prohibit C&R. All fish must be taken. They consider Catch and Release as torturing the fish so they would rather have you kill them.

    "In Switzerland and Germany catch and release fishing is considered inhumane and is now banned"

    He does make stream jogging look a lot easier than it is.

    To me, him running down stream in sneakers was the most amazing part of the video. Oh and nice fish.

    BRAVO!

    What a reward for such an effort. He kisses the fish and holds it like the trophy is has become.

    I am thinking it was caught in Quebec

    I think from the translation this is a lake run trout from La Dranse river, a tributary to Lake Geneva (Lac Leman)
