There has been a lot of tent catapillers in the Catskills this spring. Has anyone ever seen a fish take one and swallow it? I was going to take one home and exparament with a pattern, but before I left the pond I tossed about 40 in with no takers. There was a few refusals. One ot two took them in their mouths and then spit them out and swam away.

Like a lot of caterpillars, their defense is to taste really bad.
