I just got out of quarantine and wanted to take my little cousin fishing to celebrate. Her new zebco combo somehow broke internally on the first cast, but she took it in stride. She mastered using my open face reel really quickly and didn't break off a single fish over the course of 6hr on 4lb line in swift current. She got 6 or 7 species by the end of the day, but the slab that's above and the smallmouth I'm dropping below really got us excited. Before we even started packing our bags to leave she was asking when I'm going fishing next, and if she could come with me again then grin Nothing beats getting a kid excited to go fishing!
