Re: Ever have a bird attack you while fly fishing?
I have had both bats and swallows pick my fly off the water before, never hooked though. On one occasion that involved a 10wt, cooler of beer, dog food for chumming carp and a streak of other bad decisions I might have hooked a mallard in the caboose. As the leader was forty pound test and I could not break it I might have also needed to land said mallard. Again, trying to incriminate myself too much- that was one pi$$ed off duck....
