Generally speaking, the fisherman/fish dynamic is stacked heavily in favor of the guy with the hook. The relationship would seem even more unequal when the angler is dropping a grenade into the water.

However, there are occasions in which grenade fishing poses as much of a risk to the hunter as it does to prey. See what we mean in this video from Russia.

Looks like they didn’t understand the grenade’s timing mechanism or they got a weapon with a short fuse.

Luckily, it doesn’t appear that the fishermen were seriously injured. We can’t speak for any close-to-the-surface fish, however.

To dig up an old Yakov Smirnoff joke, we think the lesson here is that in Soviet Russia the grenade throws you. (Or perhaps in Soviet Russia the fishes catch you.)

What do you think?
