    I was Fishin on Pacific Creek in Whyoming when my brother and i walked around a bend in the creek. Our view was blocked by timber and a few large trees, when we got around the corner there was two Moose. Just drinkin the water, both looked straight up at us from about 50 yards away. I told my brother just to walk backwards slowly and not to take our eyes off them, at the end of the day we had a successfull day on the river and had a pretty sweet encounter with two large animals! I would have to say my heart was pumpin pretty fast and i may of been alittle scared:) But falling into a fasst moving river with nothing to grab onto is probly my greatest fear while fishing, happen to my brother once but luckily i was able to run along shore and grab is hand after a little bit of a run. He was only 13 and i was 15 so makes for a good memory!

    I would say it used to be bears, cougar bigfoot. Now I would have to say being struck by lightning during a thunderstorm. I know some of you are like WTF thats not that scary but being in the military, about seven years ago I saw my roommate get struck by lighting while training and it was bad and he didnt make it. Before that I would rarely if ever stop fishing during a tunderstorm, now I rarely continue fishing if there is much lighting.
