This Guy Caught a Fish With His Drone

1 minute read

A Kansas farmer appeared to make fishing history recently by catching a fish with nothing but the help of his trusty drone.

Derek Klingenberg piloted his DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter—armed with a fishing line and a camera—toward a lake, and promptly caught a fish with no rod. His elation is undeniable, and Klingenberg then demonstrated he might be the most tech-savvy farmer in the Midwest by posting his catch on Snapchat.

However, as Wired points out, Klingenberg isn’t necessarily the first to do this, since there was a similar video of a drone-powered fishing trip in 2013.

Klingenberg is also known for serenading cows with a trombone playing Lorde’s “Royals.”

Those who want to use a drone to fish, take a video selfie, propose marriage, or deliver sushi might want to check out Hong Kong-based DJI’s newest quadcopter, which was released in April.
