Default Re: Bat Fly

Funny cartoon -- second funniest thing I heard while working in a fly shop (first was the story I posted in The Lodge re: "You Need A Net For What ...") was the guy who came in with his Sage rod for repair after he had broken the tip -- apparently his wife had decided to use his rod to rid their cottage of a bat when he arrived and was "dumbfounded" to see her attempting to "swat" the bat with his rod -- his loud "exclamation" at her use of his brand new Sage rod caused her to react by slamming the door of the bedroom (that the bat was residing in) on the tip of the rod -- eventually he was able to "reside" in the bedroom himself (once he had spent the night on the couch AND the bat was finally removed -- "catch and release" was also used in this case too)
"Fly fishing is solitary, contemplative, misanthropic, scientific in some hands, poetic in others, and laced with aesthetic considerations. It's not even clear if catching fish is actually the point." -John Gierach
