I accidentally caught duck once on a hula popper. It's kind of strange reeling in odd creatures on a fishing rod. Hoping the turtle made it thruogh ok.

Yep, I made sure that hook was taken out - I am not going to lose a good fly on a turtle! I honestly do not want to catch these but it does make for an interesting catch as first you do not know what you have caught... then it comes to the surface and ...........

On the stinky topic, some advice: turtles are very frequently carriers of salmonella, so its best to keep one's hands away from your mouth after handling one. Learned that back when I had a Red-Eared Slider as a pet in college.

That is the first turtle I hear off on a Fly Rod. I caught swallows on my 5 wt and heard of someone snagging a humming bird on their back cast.
