    Record fish caught on toy rod

    Record fish caught on toy rod

    A man in the US has managed to catch and land a record-breaking catfish on a Barbie fishing rod just 2-and-a-half feet long.



    David Hayes and his 3-year-old granddaughter Alyssa were angling in the pond behind his Wilkes County home when she asked him to hold her rod while she nipped to the loo.

    "They hadn't no more than closed the door than the cat hit the cricket and took off," Mr Hayes told the Hickory Daily Record.

    "He turned the water over and I saw his tail was about as wide as my two hands."

    Alyssa returned to find her grandad battling with the monster fish.
    "She said, 'Papa, you're going to break my rod,' because it was bent double," said Mr Hayes.

    After 25 minutes, the pink plastic toy prevailed and Mr Hayes landed the 21 lbs,1oz catfish on the 6 lbs test line.

    At 32 inches long, it was 2 inches longer than the rod.

    A state fisheries biologist from North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission has certified the record, which was nearly three pounds over the previous mark.

    Talking about a 3 year old kid like that make you feel good?

    Pathetic.
