Yup. Happened to me and thought that I had just gotten hung up on something!
They hit dries that sink all the time! Sometimes I like to highstick a dry in a white frothy plunge pool, knowing it will get sucked under. Sometimes, a big guy will take it occasionally and if you keep the tension on it right - you'll be ready!
