Bronson Turns Casting Reels Into Ensnared Muddle: Note To Self: Buy Childrens Fishing Pole for Christmas
Bronson turns four in a couple of days. As a four-year-old, he messes with everything. I can’t keep my eye off him for an instant, since if I do, stuff is certain to be messed up. He’s like a walking hurricane, that seemingly has more force than a category 5 storm. He does the silliest things on occassion, and though it can be frustrating, the stories are worth recounting after the fact.
Once, he found Daddy’s fishing tackle, and decided to set up his own fishing line. What an entangled mess he created, particularly of my casting reels and poles. He had Berkely fishing line wrapped scores of times around one casting reel, and had one pole curved in half as he had managed to thread the line and then tangle it around the leg of my work bench. It was as though the workbench was a fighting fish that was driven to get free! When I looked at the muddlement he made of my casting reels, I feared I would never get stuff reorganized. If only I had bought him his own childrens fishing pole, this probably wouldn’t have happened.
It is a good idea to buy a child his own kids fishing pole when he expresses interest in angling. Kids fishing rods typically are considerably smaller and are appropriate for young kids. They often offer miniturized casting reels, and the rods are just long enough to facilitate extension of the line away from the body. Children fishing rods are economical as well, which allows the child to gain fishing memories without breaking the budget. We all know that kids grow up fast, and quickly grow out of stuff, so starting with a children fishing pole and moving to an inexpensive casting reel and pole is a good way to go, in my opinion.
There are many kids fishing poles on the market. Shakespeare, Remington, Zebco, all manufacture simple to assemble, simple to use children fishing rods. Some of these poles have casting reels, some do not. Shakespeare, in particular, seems to have the market for kids fishing rods locked up, as many of their children fishing rods provide Disney character and story themes. Most of the Disney themed kids fishing poles are of the “drop and plop” variety, and don’t have casting reels. If you want a casting reel, it is best to move up to a Zebco 33 Dora the Explorer model or a Zebco 33 spincast style. Both of these have casting reel and rod combinations. The rods allow for greater extension, but are still at a modified length. I like the Shakespeare Salamander also. It offers all the action of adult casting reels for about 15 dollars.
Anyway, Bronson desired to choose his very own children fishing rod. So, he and I went to the local fishing outfitter to take a look at all of the casting reels and rods available. After some serious thought, he chose a Shakespeare two piece Batman Kit Combination. He wanted this kids fishing pole so he could be like Daddy and have super hero fishing adroitness! When I asked him why he did not want a Dora the Explorer children fishing pole, he just said, “because I am not a girl”.
