Budapest, Hungary | May 22, 2006 12:01:13 AM IST
A Hungarian fisherman got a 150-pound catfish on his line and died trying to reel it in, Sky News reported.
Gabor Komlosy, 53, reportedly caught a 4-foot catfish in the Szamos River, but apparently would not let go of the line when the big fish took off.
Hungarian police said Komlosy had probably been pulled down the riverbank by the fish, then hit his head on a rock and drowned.
When the man''s body was pulled out of the water, the fish was still hooked to the fishing line. (UPI)
