A Barbie Rod and a Red Plastic Worm

January 5, 2008

I love this story.

She’s only four, but a pint-sized angler is well on her way to becoming a pro.

Phoebe Swann is the daughter of 11 News photographer Kirk Swann. And she reeled in the big one during a family trip to Rockport.

Catching a big fish was not the real story. It’s the fact that Phoebe was using her Barbie fishing rod, with a red plastic worm as bait.

At the end was of the line was a 40-inch, 50-pound Black Drum.

Take a kid fishing!
