This Guy Caught A Fish With His Drone

Fishing. Once the most popular 'sport' in the UK, it's an age-old pastime much-loved for its tranquillity, skill and ability to help men everywhere duck out of weekend chores.

Unless you fish like Derek Klingenberg, in which case it's an opportunity to show off your drone skills.

The Kansas farmer - already famed for serenading his cows with trombone covers of pop songs - recently uploaded a video in which he pilots a DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter armed with a baited fishing line and camera over a lake. After a few minutes of careful hovering, Klingenberg snags his prize - albeit a small one.

The catch? A small, rather confused bluegill fish. 

Klingenberg said the catch only took him 10 minutes - though the process wasn't as relaxing as the standard riverbank technique.

We'll bring you word as soon as Amazon sign up Klingenberg's techniques and start offering one-hour fresh fish deliveries. 

We're only slightly joking...
