Finnish Scuba Divers Fishing under Ice

Three intrepid scuba divers have posted a video on YouTube of an interesting underwater fishing expedition in a frozen lake, in Saarijärvi lake in Vaala, Finland.

Eelis Rankka, Tommi Salminen and Jukka Pelttari are seen with a wheelbarrow, bucket and fishing tackle and are standing upside-down under an ice shelf.  Watching the video their bubbles can be seen trailing in the “wrong direction” as they move along the ice shelf.  The divers have perfected the knack of allowing air to fill their dry suit boots, keeping them stable on the ice.

A full news story on this can been seen in Discovery News.
