Re: BATS on a Fly
I've never actually hooked a bat, but I used to have them going after the fly especially around dusk. But it has been awhile. Unfortunately, nowadays we have fewer bats in MA because of the bat white nose fungus and we have an extraordinary amount of mosquitos.
Speaking about ducks, 30+ years ago my brothers and I were fishing a group of ponds that was newly opened for fishing. Almost immediately, one brother caught a duck, which squawked and carried on so that everyone came running. Ever since then fishing has not been allowed and the story of the incident continues to be told at the location's visitor center.
