Oddest thing I ever hooked on a fly had four legs, a wagging tail, smelled like it just had a nice roll in the adjacent ,recently fertilized field, and a bellyfull of my elk pepperoni. Was fishing for silvers last fall when a black lab started tagging along. He was a pleasant companion and we shared part of our lunch with him. My marabou pattern must have smelled like a good snack to him because he attempted to wolf it down when I put my rod down to carck open a fresh Foster's oilcan. All I heard was a yelp and my reel screaming as he bolted off in a panic. Luckily, I was able to corral him and extract the fly before he hurt himself further or drug my rod off. Looked like a sore lip was the extent of it. Another reason to de-barb the hooks!
