For a good number of years now I have watched the heron fish while I'm fly fishing whether it be for carp on the local creek, or trout on Blue River, or just about any stream or waterway I'm on.
The heron stalks fish with amazing poise and grace. The patience these creatures own is remarkable in itself.
Evidently though, the heron known as the Green Heron is a bait fisherman. You've got to watch this video showing how this bird uses bread to lure his prey. Makes me wonder if this particular bird isn't a reincarnation of a bait angler long since passed.
