“While trying to bring in the big fish on his hook, the 56-year-old man leaned over the boat’s side, lost his balance and fell overboard,” the spokesman said.

Luckily for the banker in distress, a border service boat was passing by the flailing fishing enthusiast and rescued him when they saw him vainly struggling in the ice-cold stream.

Several stocky boarder guards failed to pull the angler out, Mukhtarov said, adding that he was finally saved using a towrope.

No information was given on “the one that got away.”
