Hooked!

Rate Article0%0%

I WAS FISHING WITH MY WIFE ON LAKE JORDAN, IN NORTH CAROLINA, WHEN I STARTED CASTING A DEVIL'S HORSE LURE FOR TOP-FEEDING BASS.

AS I WORKED THE BRIGHT LURE ACROSS THE WATER'S SURFACE, A HUGE BARRED OWL SWOOPED FROM THE SKY AND SNATCHED IT UP.

THE HUNTER TURNED INTO THE HUNTED AS THE LURE SANK INTO THE OWL'S TALON. I SUDDENLY FOUND MYSELF FIGHTING TO REEL IN THE AIRBORNE PREDATOR!

ARMED WITH ONLY A JACKET AND PLIERS, WE PULLED THE ANGRY BIRD TO THE GROUND TO EXTRACT THE HOOK.

LUCKILY, THE LURE TUMBLED FREE OF THE OWL'S SHARP TALONS, ALLOWING THE BIRD TO FLY AWAY.
