Re: Ever have a bird attack you while fly fishing?
Only bird encounter I remember was having a great blue heron try to eat a hooked shrimp I had lost to a dock-line on a private dock. Trespassing went out the window when the bird got itself stuck and I jumped out of the water and ran down the dock and "reeled" the heron in. Like Frank's duck, the hook missed the heron's tongue and I was able to unhook it and it flapped a short distance away and sat in the water watching my dad and I fish. Once its wings dried off, it flew a ways off to return to stalking fish in the shallows.
