Bald Eagle Snatches Fish, Backing and Fly!

Eagle Takes the Prize After Angler Does the Work

The Bald Eagle can dive at a speed of anywhere between 75 and 99 mph.

Which may explain why this angler had no idea the feathered poacher was eyeing his catch.

His reaction is priceless; when he posted this video he noted: “This Eagle stole a beautiful Dolly Varden Char right off of my hook, then took all my backing and stole my fly too!”

It’s been estimated that the Bald Eagle can exert 10 times as much pressure as a human being – so there was no way this fish was very coming back.
