Here is one angling method that is definitely not recommended by anyone. If you’re ever in the Amazon River or any other area with piranhas—and you don’t mind losing the tips of your fingers—you can catch the fish using nothing more than a piece of meat and a large bowl. It is a relatively easy task to dip the bloody piece of meat in the water and draw out the fish, still holding onto their meal with their infamously sharp teeth. In the video below, you can see a woman employing the technique with her bare hands.
Don’t ever, ever try this.
