The Reel World
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "Sqwack!"
 
2     "Look out! You almost hit the duck in the head!" Bobby called to his friend Stan.
 
3     Stan was fishing. He had just put bait on his hook and cast the line. He had thrown it before seeing the duck.
 
4     "Ooops!" he responded.
 
5     Stan had not fished very often. He was camping with Bobby, who liked to fish a lot. Bobby even had his own rod and reel. They were trying to catch some fish for breakfast.
 
6     Bobby came over to Stan and said, "Here, let me show you." That was something Stan liked about Bobby. He was always helpful.
 
7     He took Stan's rod. He showed him how to pull back and fling the bobber. It sailed with a wide arc out to the water and went "kerplunk" as it landed.
 
8     "You'll get used to it," he encouraged.
 
9     Stan tried again. This time, he hit a spot away from the duck. He patiently waited and watched the bobber. After a few minutes, he wanted to reel it in. Bobby told him to wait.
