Fishing has always been a favorite summer pastime. Introducing the younger members of the family to fishing can be a frustrating experience. Too often families return home with nothing to show for their efforts as little ones often scare the fish away in their excitement. Toy fishing sets often involve stationary fish being ‘caught’ with a magnet or hook which are boring and often quickly cast aside.

Smaller children may require a bit of assistance to reel in and land the fish due to its weight. But, most families reported hours of fun. Some even told of young children sneaking off to fill the bathtub and don their bathing suits to play with the Catch of the Day fishing toy.
