An Australian man took advantage of flooding in his area by casting his line from a water-logged road and catching a fish.

Damien Monck posted a video to Facebook showing him taking advantage of the Northern Territory flooding by going fishing on what is normally dry land near Batchelor, south of Darwin.

The video shows Monck cast his line from the road into a flooded park.

Monch gets a bite and reels in what turns out to be a barramundi.
