A fisherman got a winged surprise when a bald eagle swooped in and stole a fish right in front of him. Small problem, the fish was hooked on his line.

The video, which Norman Dreger posted on his YouTube page last week, documents the few seconds of terror as the eagle flies away and his fishing line can be heard unspooling.

Dreger can be heard swearing and then screaming as the eagle swoops in, goes for the grab and flies away. "This Eagle stole a beautiful Dolly Varden Char right off of my hook, then took all my backing and stole my fly too!," Dreger writes on his YouTube description.

It seems like this isn't Dreger's only run-in with an eagle. He posted another video of an eagle trying to snag a fish from him.
