    At about age 8, my youngest daughter caught a fat lady in a polyester outfit. Caught her on the back cast with a spinning rod on the dock at Deer Harbor.

    Seagull right out the air as it was flying buy. Had to chase it down the beach about a 1/4 mile before I could get it unhooked with the help of a home owner.

    I was fishing with a bobber and a minnow, hooked a water moccasin. Threw pole and all in the water...I really don't like snakes.

    Another good one.... I was fishing Martha lake in warm beach when I got hung up.... It came loose from the bottom and up comes an old spinning rod. I start hand lining the old mono in to get it out of the lake, and lo and behold the spoon on the end of the leader is hooked to the eyelet of another complete spinning rod. 2 for 1!

    I caught a live fresh water mussel on the the Yakima. It actually inhaled or "ate" my copper john as both halves of the bi-valve were firmly enclosed on the nymph.

    Okay, here goes.

    Bat, sea bird 40 feet under the surface at Neah bay on a needle fish jig, chicken bone, swivel eyelet with a complete leader and fish attached to the hook, camera strap with camera still attached, lots of rocks, barbie rod, shirts, a flip flop.....hmm...I think that's it.

    Caught a rock on Saturday, felt like Charlie fuckin' Brown. Have also caught a sea anemone; the fight wasn't worth beans and they look like huge boogers when out of the water.
