Well, actually an RC heli in a pond, but still amazing.

His second attempt is even better:

So if you're caught out in the wilderness, just build yourself an RC heli from sticks and twigs and you won't go hungry. :p

Wow, that guy is one heck of a pilot. Its hard enough flying a RC heli, even without a fish flopping around underneath it.

I am surprised he managed to catch one, I'm no fisherman but I figured that the down wash would scare the fish away? Apparently not :D

Helifishing is the way of the future!

Air hitting the water from a RC chopper shouldn't be any more unsettling to the fish than a stiff breeze.

He says the normal Idaho wind on the pond is pretty severe, and the heli downdraft is comparatively unnoticeable.
