Thought I'd share a couple fishing related birds. I was once removing my hook from a fish at my side on the O'Hair when the line suddenly came alive. There were a lot of insects coming off the water that day and a swallow had tangled itself in the line hanging between my rod tip and the water. Surprisingly, it did not struggle, allowing me to unwrap the loop of line and let it fly off from my palm. They are always hard to catch in flight (pun intended) and I got lucky with this shot over the weekend.
