“I’m going to try fishing with my drone. This is my first attempt.” And so begins one of the great modern spectacles of stage and screen. Here we have farmer Derek on a deck with his drone in flight overhead; fishing in his local lake.

This is one of those great videos that is a crystal clear testament to both the ingenuity of the human spirit, and also marked boredom on a Sunday afternoon at home. Whatever the case, it does indeed need to be said: Derek came, he saw — he somehow did it! — and the video makes for a great watch.
