What are Your Strange Cathches ?

I was just thinking of all the strange catches I've had in the last 58 years.

A starling picked up a rooster tale I tied on to try out a new rod in the back yard.  Two seagulls ate my minnow, A mallard and  a black duck got hooked when they swam by unattended popping bugs took two times to learn my lesson.  A low flying pelican got tangled in the line from my surf rod and became an attack pelican while I cut it free.  Two baby alligators ate my  minnows (their mama was highly upset…

Hi Mark. Glad to be counted among your friends. Have I ever asked  if you've made a tutorial on designing poppers? Like I said, I've made a few for bass and gills, but not nearly as finished as yours. I'm going to get back on it this winter. I need to quit tying trout flies I never use, HA!

Hey Mark I picked up some of your bugs off the cards in Bob's for my dad's birthday......He's an avid fly fisherman down in Louisiana and I liked several of your featured flies......Great work on them!

Hi Mark, Thanks for the info on the rod building site. I have looked at that before and it's very helpful.

Talk to you later.

Hey Mark, Very nice work on the flies and the rod.  Any advise for a new rod builder?  I've made a few spinning rods and rewrapped a few older fly rods and made quite a few ice rods.  I'm just getting a good hold on the processes and I find it very relaxing. I Look forward to talking to you.
