Fishin practice up date 09/30/16
Over the last 30 years I have had some amazing customers. memorable ones, and often they are very young, A woman came in with her son 4 or 5 years old asking for a fishing pole. we settled on an Iron Man fishing pole. what is cool about some of these kids combos is they come with a foam hook and foam practice fish. I know it is hard to figure out how to put them together, so I put the hook together and assembled the fish. So he could catch them with his new rod.
Well I learned years ago when showing young boys how to cast do it underhand. Not over hand, as young boys can get a bit excited, So in the store I showed him and he cast a time or two and he and his mom left.
Today I found out that today is Father/Son day at their house. Dad went to get something for them and heard a crash and banging from the boy’s room.
He ran back and there in the room, the boy on the bed sort of hiding with big wide eyes as Iron man the fishing pole was flying round and round the room hooked to the ceiling fan. No one hurt minimal damage to the toy shelves and he is ready for more practice, now that Dad has removed Iron man from the ceiling fan.
When someone leaves the store you just never know the stories they will bring back.
I should have warned the mom Iron man can fly.
