Howards Bats of Colorado
So, what are my chances of catching a bat instead of a fish (accidently of course!) when I head out to Colorado in August? Howard says that there are a few bats out there. Is it possible that when my fly rod gets cast up into the air, that I could end up with a bat at the end of my line instead of a brown trout??? Hmmm...Are these legends or truths? I thought that maybe it was time that I check things out...and here is what I found.....

Myths and misconceptions aside, bats are astonishing animals. They are the only true flying mammals. Unlike "flying" squirrels and "flying" lemurs, which merely glide, bats are capable of powered flight. And they are remarkably adept at it, surpassing in many ways even the considerable skills of birds. A bat flying at 40 miles per hour can make a right-angle turn in little more than the length of its body. That means one thing to me...GET THE H...OUT OF THE WAY!!!
No...that's just not me...Sorry...Let's try again.
Yep... Watch out Owl Jones!!! Camo is out...RD fashionware is in!
Lastly, here is my favorite role model of them all (j/k) ...the one, the only..."Batgirl" herself!!
Extra bat points for watching...
