    I've had a few sea gulls and a couple of ducks, but the most unusual was a bat when I was fly fishing on the river Nidd as few years ago.

    Wrecking off whitby in the 80's hooked into what I and the skipper thought was a monster! There wasn't much of a fight, but it was so dam heavy. The the skipper was watching it come up on the sounder and keeping me posted on how near the surface it was. After what seemed like an eternity, skipper says "30 feet to go" by this time most of the lads on board were watching in anticipation. As it came into view, no-one could believe what I'd caught! It was a bleedin rock weighing about 5kg with a big frond of weed attached to it :mad: gutted didn't come close!

    I had a jet skier fishing at upgang got him round the neck managed to grab the rod before it was dragged in he put up a hell of a fight.
    Got him on 15lb line size 1/0 hook and lugworm for bait just before high tide threw him back to grow a bit bigger.
    What a prat lucky he never choked to death.
    But he's my biggest catch to date so should of stuffed him and put him above the fire place. :D

    My dad caught a dustpan off of The East Pier at Scarborough a couple of summers ago whilst spinning. And I remember catching a seagull when I was younger.

    Loved the mattress story!

    A long time ago in the 1970's I was fishing during a warm summer evening with my youngest brother Paul who was about 10 at the time for billet off the Marine Drive, Scarborough near the toll house. Paul's spinning rod bent over, as he struggled to wind his catch in and the crowd of tourists gathered to witness the catch. I could see what looked like a short fat black eel on his line. Seconds later he swung in a large black durex full of water which then collapsed as it hit the pavement. The crowd disappeared faster than some of my old mates did when you said it was their round, with parents dragging kids away being questioned by their kids on what he had caught. We told Paul he had caught a big rubber monster and had to kick it back in!

    I caught a womens purse under the new flyover at Whitby a few years back during a St Marys match, thought i had a good fish on until it surfaced. When i handed it in to the police it turned out to have pickpocketed the week before from a tourist. the Club wouldn't let me weigh the 5 pound phone card in for the match though!!!

    Also hooked a Guillemot on a float rig up at Arbroath fishing next to Terry Dalton. Both thought i had a good sized Pollack for a while.
