How do fish pull away so well when hooked, they are in water and can not hold onto anything?

In: Physics

They use their tail to swim against the line (I believe you’ve already seen a fish swimming). This movement propels water behind them, and with the action/reaction principle it propels them forward. Exactly like if you tied your line to a boat the boat could pull by using its propeller to launch water behind it.
