Thats terrible! In an area that I fish a guy took the rod everytime his son hooked a fish, then because a buddy and I were hooking so many he asked us if his son could reel in one of ours. :wallbash: For the kids sake I let him reel one in but told the guy that he should be ashamed of himself for taking the rod from the kid. Some people truly amaze me.SilverTrout said:too bad the dad wouldnt let the young girl fight that fish that SHE hooked on her own !!!!!
