VIDEO: Damsels in distress

THIS amazing footage of brown trout feeding on damsel flies was shot in New Zealand by Sharptail Media and posted on Vimeo.

According to the filmmaker: "My wife and I were fishing with friend/guide Dean Whaanga in New Zealand when a combination of bad weather and good timing resulted in a fish giving us the experience of a lifetime. I crawled on my stomach with my camera to the waters edge, hit record, and watched what was one of the coolest moments I have ever witnessed."

Amazing stuff!
