Give a kid a fish and he probably won’t eat it (fish are yucky!), but teach a kid to fish and he just might have one of the most mind-bending experiences of his cute little life. See, here’s the thing about fishing: When it works, it’s crazy, especially if you’ve never caught a fish before. What’s that slimy, pre-historic looking creature doing where your worm used to be? And more importantly, can you touch it?

Good thing he caught a nice fishy.

It has to be a little embarrassing for the fish to get caught with a Barbie poll.

It’s a wiggly one.

Fishing is easy. Counting is hard.

Fishing is a sport of very few words, namely “I got a big one” and “Reel! Reel! Reel!”
