    Well I took my 10 year old daughter to a kids fishing derby this morning, and she caught a 3.08 lb carp . She was all pumped for having the largest fish [at the time] weighed then she entered the casting contest ,where the kids tried to hit a bullseye painted on the pavement at about 20 ft away. she hit the center ring twice!! out of two chumks. I was impressed to say the least. well when the thing was all over she missed out on both the big fish and the dink , the big fish was a carp at 8.16 and the dink was .03oz her dink was .04 oz. but she won a brand new zebco slingshot rod and reel combo on the casting contest. I'm almost as proud as she is.

    I wonder where she gets it from?

    That sounds great! Her casting accuracy is better than that of most folks I know, myself included.
