a quack attack
strangest catch ever: parents and i were fishing rocky ford creek in central washington. across this semi-desert oasis is a narrow, one person bridge one can easily fish from. and i was. and then...3 mergansers came flying by...under the bridge...and I felt the familiar nudge of a strike...set the hook and started reeling. then while i was letting line go, i noticed a commotion several yards away in the general direction of my fly and supposed fish...dad caught a glimpse of my line (he was down stream) and said i had foul-hooked it...the it being a merganser. now i always watch out for ducks when fishing a bridge..
