Despite the statistic that 1 in 10 helicopters in New Zealand crash – don’t know where I got that stat, but I did hear it somewhere, so it must be true – the true fishermen of New Zealand embrace the danger to perform the marlin (belly)flop.
What the hell? I understand that these are silver carp which are taking over some of America’s waterways. The engine noise causes them to jump out of the water. Apparently this is becoming a real issue – especially as they don’t make good eating. Must give you a fright the first time it happens, though.
