It was a first for me on Monday fishing my local small spate river. I had just changed to a cascade and was fishing down into a nice wee pool and the fly had come round on the dangle when I connected with I thought a fish when I lifted into it I thought I had caught up on a log with the fish behind it. Then I realised it was an otter I don't think it was on the jacket but in its mouth had two runs across the pool before it parted company thank goodness. I had decided before that to try and get it in and then think about how to deal with it don't know what would have happened it was I think last years kit. I certainly didn't want to have hooked it unfortunately the cast broke at the hook so I hopefully it will work itself out. Anyone else had that experience of unusual hook ups.
