We were discussing a while ago if dolphin will take hooked fish or if they wait for the fish to be released. Here's a picture of a false albacore taken by a dolphin (warm blooded variety). The hook doesn't deter them in the least, but I think they know where it is and break away the head with the hook in it. If the fish is hooked deeply you get to keep the guts too. In this case the fly was in the mouth so the dolphin took the guts too..
