The one that got away...

... took his life too.
BERLIN - ...
A police spokeswoman said the fish pulled the fishing rod out of the man’s hands and dragged it about 100 meters (about 328 feet) away from shore at the Kleinen Pohlitzer lake near Eisenhuettenstadt. The man took off his clothes and swam after the runaway fish and pole.

A witness said the man reached the rod floating on the surface but then suddenly stopped moving. The 54-year-old witness swam out to help the fisherman and pulled him back to shore, where he was later pronounced dead, police said.
full story.

I guess the moral here is that if you want to live, you should keep a firm grip on your rod at all times!
