Two weeks ago we brought your attention to the balls deep badassness of BBC's new series, "Human Planet." Here's another awesome clip from the show of a man crossing a highwire over the raging rapids of Vietnam's Mekong River. All to get to his favorite fishing hole. Via the BBC description:
During monsoon season the Mekong swells to 20 times its normal volume, which brings more fish to the Khone Falls but makes them much harder to catch. Sam Niang, a local fisherman, came up with a plan to get to the best fishing perch. He built a tightrope across the rapids out of old cable and bits of rope.
It's not quite as gangsta as staring down a pack of hungry lions, but it's stil a complete boss move. Watch it after the jump.
Equally boss accomplishment: Fishing at the very top of Victoria Falls. I'm telling you, this show is f*cking awesome.
