Hold it?! You caught a truck? I have to know, how.
Now if you're anything like me at fly fishing, many things behind and above me have been hooked haha.


I was flyfishing Pass Lake in Washington state a long long time ago and on a false cast I hooked the mirror of a 70's era Ford F-250 that was going down the highway. My line was coming off the reel so fast it was crazy. I started to grab the line and glad I didnt. When it hit the end of the backing on the reel it poped off, but so did the reel pop off the pole, destroying an old bamboo rod and good fly reel that my grandfather had given me.

Oh that sucks! And you probably couldn't do that again if you tried, even though I hope no one would.

Caught the remains of a Coleman lantern several years ago. The glass was gone, tank full of mud and about rusted away, but I still have the brass parts off of it. A cheap spincast rod & reel; hooked it through one of the guides.

One time I was fishing alone at night for stripers, throwing big Cordell Redfins. I was catching quite a few fish - not any big ones, but there were schoolies busting bait all around, and the action was fast.

Anyway, at one point I landed a small striper that was probably about 20 inches long, and as I lifted him into the boat, he came unhooked and fell in the floorboard of my boat. I set down my rod and absentmindedly laid the Redfin in my boat seat, and then I grabbed the striper off the floor of my boat and tossed him back in the lake.

And that's where I messed up. I forgot the Redfin was sitting in my seat, and I sat back down on it. Two prongs of the treble hooks went right through the coveralls and jeans I was wearing and stuck me right in the butt. And at the same time, a few more prongs of the treble hooks went into the vinyl cover of my boat seat. So then the hooks were in my butt, and more hooks were in my seat, and the Redfin was holding the seat against my butt so that I could neither remove the seat from my butt nor get a hand into a place where I could remove the hooks from my backside.

I had to remove the seat from the pedestal, drive the boat back to the ramp with the pedestal seat sitting on top of the other seat (THANK GOD the lake was deserted and I didn't have to cross any boat wakes and drive the hooks further into my butt), then trailer my boat with the boat seat on my butt, and then drive back to my girlfriend's apartment with the pedestal seat sitting on top of my driver's seat in my car. At that point, with the assistance of my girlfriend, we decided my coveralls and jeans were less expensive than a replacement boat seat, so we cut the seat out of my pants, got the hooks out of my butt, and then carefully removed the other hooks from the boat seat with minimal damage.

So I guess the strangest thing I've caught while fishing is my own butt, though at least I did learn a valuable lesson about looking where I sit.
