How many of us have tried catching a fish with a string and a bottle? People who live beside lakes and rivers must have definitely tried it out. Besides, with how long fishing has been in our culture, one can expect different innovations associated with it. From line fishing to netting on a large scale, this discipline is definitely the job for a grown man. And yet, there have been innovations made by kids that would make everyone’s life easier. One such kid showed everyone how easy it was to fish with just a couple of tools. Interestingly, those tools aren’t even complicated to find.
Pro Fish Hunter, a YouTube channel dedicated to the art of fishing, posted this video. And as it turns out, the kid went viral pretty soon. The 8-minute video is nothing but a crash course in confidence. The kid shows exceptional skill in what he does, even though he is just a child. In this video, the kid simply fishes in the river with just a few sticks and a couple of soda bottles. If one were to notice, the kid was also using some form of dough putty. One familiar with the art of fishing would know that most fishermen use small fishes and worms as bait. After the little child wrapped the dough around the hooks, he made his way to set up the fishing lines.

This is when his skillset shows itself. The little kid first unspools his fishing line from the soda bottles that he has. He further places the bottles into the sticks to see that he has secured them. One can easily notice that the kid is a professional. It is quite astounding that he has such dexterity at such a young age. Not to forget, his instinct is pretty on the spot too!
While others would be sitting around the water waiting for fish, this boy has other plans. He simply keeps his fishing lines as they are. Until it snags up some fish, he doesn’t touch the lines again. After three hours had passed, the boy comes back. This time around, he notices longer fishing lines and a few slanted sticks. This indicates that there are fish that have snagged themselves to the stick. He then starts pulling and spooling his fishing lines to see the catch of the day.

This kid is amazing.”
