Man, there are parts of that video that I would like to belive are not "staged" but there are certainly elements to it that are suspicious. My first, "what the *#^$%^" came when I HEARD the split shot hit the 2ft of water! Not saying that's what happened, because I wasn't there, but we refer to that as "lining" or "flossing" over here. Happens on the Amercian River by both fly and gear anglers after salmon and steelhead. Heavy weight, long leader, big hook, sweep it across the nose of a sighted fish, especially when it's opening and closing it's mouth... whamo!
