Something Batty on the River
I love to fly fish and I think I have done quite a bit of it in the last 4 plus years but this is something I've never seen.
I was fly fishing at dusk on Spring Creek and before the sun went down I did notice a few birds around and those pesky kingfisher birds that eat fish. Well when the sun did start to go down I was still fly fishing and I noticed these things I thought were birds on the water. They were swooping and flying right above the water. I thought they were swallow like birds.
Then I notice they aren't birds at all.. they were BATS! Yes bats on the water which I had never seen, and I have fished at dusk a lot but never before have I seen bats before or at least I thought they were bats.
Yes Bats swooping and feeding on the bugs on the water surface! Scary little nasty things. I guess we actually have a lot of different kinds of bats here.
Have you ever been fishing at dusk and had the bats out and about?
