What fisherman doesn’t dream of a big catch? So Hannah Barron, 23, of Illinois, isn’t averse to catching bigger fish either. But unlike other fishermen, she is not bored with a fishing rod, but takes prey with her bare hands in her native element.
The American’s next take hit Instagram users and garnered many mixed reviews. The method of catching Hannah’s practices is called «nudling».
It has been known since ancient times, but today it is not practiced so often. It consists in the fact that the fisherman stalks a large fish in the water, then puts a hand up to the forearm in its mouth, and catches the gills with the other. Such a “lock” provides reliable fixation of the prey, which certainly will not be able to escape.
A hand in the throat prevents the fish from resisting in the water, where it would otherwise have an undoubted advantage over a person.
Despite this, only a strong and very skilled person, like Hannah Barron, can practice noodles.
The girl’s next catch – a monstrous catfish, was caught on a fishing trip, which Hanna went with friends, who, like her, like to fish with their bare hands.
His partners were men, but only Barron got the spoils.
The company dived from the boat into the water, and the girl was the first to find a large catfish and catch it with a special technique. Catfish don’t have teeth, so Hanna wasn’t at risk of serious injury.
The mouth of this fish can expand several times, which allows it to swallow prey of impressive size.
But that day, it was not carp or bream that entered the monster’s throat, but the experienced hand of a young fisherwoman and her life in the river immediately ended.
The video shows friends helping Hanna to lift the prey aboard the boat – it is not so easy to extract such fish from the water.
It is not the first catch of the athlete and the beauty, but, without a doubt, one of the most impressive.
Barron’s life and, of course, the hunt are followed by 530,000 people on Instagram, and every new photo is actively commented on.
The girl is not only a fisherman, but also an avid hunter. In his account, there is a photo with slaughtered deer, wolves and wild boar, and in one photo Barron has a dead alligator hoisted onto his shoulder.
The river intake also occupied a prominent place in this gallery. As always in such cases, opinions under the new photos with the catfish were divided.
Some subscribers admired the girl, while others were on the side of the injured fish and took pity on her.
The girl is absolutely calm and even smiles, although this huge animal has swallowed her hand.
One of Hanna’s talent admirers comments.
But then someone nearby declares that everything that is happening is a nightmare and a disgrace.
What do you think – is it possible in our time to kill animals for entertainment, without having a particular need for their meat?
