Finnish fisherman upside down on ice (video)

Ice fishing is generally a long and solitary affair, with hours spent waiting for a bite as a rod dangles through a hole in the ice.

But a small group of Finnish fisherman have a different interpretation of ice fishing, as seen in a video posted from their recent adventure at Lake Saarijärvi in Vaala, a municipality in eastern Finland.

Instead of sitting atop the ice, these fisherman dove beneath the surface, and fished while standing upside down on the ice. As they breathe, bubbles from their mouths flow downward.

Watch the incredible video below:
