YouTube video shows everything that's great about fishing
On the YouTube video, the girl named Avery struggles with her tiny Barbie pole to reel in a 5-pound largemouth bass. This brings back so many great fishing memories for me, from my own beginnings with a Mickey Mouse pole fishing with my grandparents and struggling to reel in a "MONSTER" fish to teaching my younger cousins how to fish on similar poles. The excitement of seeing that huge creature splashing in the depths below -- with Avery screaming "YES! YES! YES!" We've all been there.
It's so incredibly important for the fishing community that people take their sons and daughters, grandchildren, nephews and nieces, or other younger relative fishing to keep the tradition alive and introduce them to the excitement and thrill of catching their first fish or that huge lunker.
And be sure to film it all, as it will provide a great memory down the road for you all to watch again. Even if you don't decide to put it on YouTube and become an Internet sensation like Avery, you can still cherish the fond memory of a successful fishing trip. And remember, it's not just about catching fish, it's about creating memories. You don't have to be a great angler to take a kid fishing. You just have to be there.
