Model Rocket Launches When a Fish Bites the Hook

(Video Link)

Mike Haeg built this contraption to use while ice fishing. When a fish pulls on the line, the movement of the reel triggers a model rocket to launch. Skip ahead in the video to 0:35 to see the action. Haeg writes "No one lost a hand, but we did lose 2 rockets."
