So this video of a bald eagle grabbing a fish being reeled in by a fly angler has been floating around the Interwebs for about a week now. It would appear that the huge bird spools the reel in about 5 seconds. But I’m calling it a fake. I think the footage is real, but I believe the screaming drag sound was piped in back at the editing room. Notice that you never see the bent rod nor the reel that is supposedly getting smoked. As for the dude’s reaction, sorry, but it sounds very poorly acted. If this happened to me, there would have been some cuss words to bleep out. I think they pitched something in the water knowing the bird would grab it and staged the whole thing. Then again, it’s just my opinion. What do you think?
