Default crazy stuff!

so i was sitting here a few minutes ago reading up on some fly fishing for bass articles and thought. has anyone ever accidentally caught the attention of a frog or unwanted bird? i mean these flies are incredibly similar to the real thing, it must have happened to some one at one time.

What are some of your crazy fly fishing stories?

Actually it has happend to me a few times! I caught a bull frog throwing a nymph while bluegill fishing, I caught a turtle on a streamer while bass fishing another time, and I have had multiple ducks and geese come over and try to eat my topwater fly thinking it was a piece of bread. And no the frog and the turtle were not foul hook, they actually ate the fly and where hooked and landed. I must say that when the turtle was hooked he put up quite a fight, I actually thought I had a catfish or carp

My brother caught a dragonfly on a small dry.

My grandfather caught an owl while chucking flies with a casting bubble. seems he had lost some water and the bubble was floating on top. THe owl probably thought it was a mouse.

I lived I NE Texas for 9 years and did a LOT of pond fishing on the fly rod. At dusk on hot summer nights, bats would chase my fly during my cast. Never caught one though!

i grew up in texas and caught tons of weird things, none of these are on a fly rod but ive caught a seagul, duck, baby alligator (that was scary), turtle, and a snake. some was on live bait others were soft plastic. catching birds is my least favorite thing about fishing, but boy do they put up a good fight.
