Can you catch a fly bare-handed?

If you can what do you do with them? I can and when I was a kid I used to pull the wings off of them and poke them with a pin to watch them break dance. I know, it's mean but it did impress the guys. LOL! I didn't care about that as much as the fact that someone thought it was cool. Anyway, now I release them to the wild. =)
