Flooding Across Europe – Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Spain

Thousands of people across Europe have been displaced by major flooding due to heavy rain. The man in the photo below was obviously quite lucky, both for catching a fish, and for not being in areas where the flood waters reached over 3 feet!

I really love Boston’s Big Picture features, I’d also like to hope that one day I could do something like that here with Fishing Fury. But until that time, this image should serve as inspiration.
