Default What else have you caught

Being a warmwater fly fishing nut I am always curious about other fish species caught on the fly rod. Most warmwayer fisherman have caught bass, crappie, etc. but what is the most unusual fish you have taken on the fly.

I hooked a bat once on the backcast. Does that count?

Guys has to be fish, although seeing a bat caught on a backcast would be something special.

well i haven't been fly fishing long, but i guess for me it was a shad about the length of my pointer finger. With a prince nymph. now the craziest way i've seen one caught was through the tail. it was a bluegill that bit and spit and when my friend went to set the hook it hooked into his tail. That was pretty crazy.

A really good warmwater fighting fish are carp. I know we all cringe at the sound of carp but they will give you a serious run for your money if they have space, they also eat pretty weird stuff somtimes; cottonwood seeds etc, so you get to tie some bizarre stuff for them aswell. Bring your 8wt

ps. catfish are also pretty niffty aswell but a lot harder to catch since they're bottom feeders.

and just to top the duck i hooked a kispiox river beaver

25 inch, 5+ pound Drum on an Egg Sucking Leech, 9 ft 7 wt Orvis rod.

(Poor pic from buddy's cell phone. I think he was jealous, and waited until the fish turned the wrong way before snapping the pic.)
