Be sure to turn on the volume in the lower corner. It adds to the overall effect of the loop. I don’t think that this was faked. Her friend seemed legitimately scared for a moment.

I failed miserably trying to get my daughter onto a fish with a Barbie rod. I finally had to just teach her to cast a fly-rod and put her onto a fish in the way that I am accustomed to. Her reaction to her first fish, while excited was not quite this enthusiastic.

He is interviewed in this article, which describes a “Barbie Pole” tournament for steelhead in Cleveland. I cut my teeth guiding for steelhead, and I can’t imagine trying to land such a powerful fish on such ridiculous tackle. It looks something like this:

    I don’t want to be that guy, but that first one belongs in irresponsible knife owners.

She went from relaxed and being with people she trusted to panicking and attempting to run for her life in a quarter of a second.
