Beaver Tail Slap when he snuck to close behind me!
check been there done that
Cottonmouths - one in a 13 ft john boat with a buddy in the front with a Colt Woodsman can you say line of fire, snake phobia and my buddy paying huge bucks for shooting up a rental boat! Lost five years off my life with that scare.
Geese -nasty when nesting--enough said
Big Carp--fishing a couple huge ones out in front of me when a school of thirty five or so 20 lbers snuck in fron the rear. I roll casted to the ones out front and got ran down and reverse knee capped by at least two of the behemoths from behind in thier blind panic!
Dove with and fished around gators and sharks all my life and so far no surprises but I always remember that big things eat big things!
Have you ever backcast and hung a limb that held a hornets nest?
luckily I froze till the bees settled down and then quietly detached fly from fly line and left.
Great discussion subject!
