It wasn't with a fly rod, but I've got claims on a Pelican. I was surf fishing with my grandfather back home on the Alabama coast. I had just made a cast and was watch the line and this group of pelicans came cruise the beach line right above the water. The next thing I know is my rod bowed over and the bird hit the water and he didn't just hit it, he got wrapped up in it from flopping around. It took me and my grandfather about 20 minutes to get it off and I lost count of how many times I got bit.
