You're certainly not going to land one of those with a fly-fishing pole.

Re: The one that didn't get away

I fished today. It was lousy. Poor year so far except for my
bass fishing in Wisconsin last week.

I did catch the "Mother of all Snapping Turtles". He was not happy
and neither was I (I don't keep 'em). Happily, the hook slipped out
and ended up in his (her?) rear portions. Just grabbed the tail and slipped the hook. Everyone was happy.
