    Default Man uses Barbie fishing rod to make record catch

    ELKIN, N.C. (AP) - David Hayes' granddaughter just asked him to hold her Barbie rod and reel while she went to the bathroom. He did. And seconds later he landed the state record channel catfish at 21 pounds, 1 ounce.
    Alyssa's father had bought the pink Barbie fishing rod for Christmas and she had caught a few bluegill before her grandfather hauled in the catfish.
    The Winston-Salem Journal reported the catch Aug. 5 in eastern Wilkes County has been certified as a record by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.
    Hayes and his granddaughter have been fishing in the pond behind his house since she was big enough to hold a pole.
    Hayes said his granddaughter worried he would break her rod. He landed the 21-pound fish on a 6-pound test line. It was 32 inches long, 2 inches longer than the rod.
    If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them.

    If it was a catch and release scenario how do you think that big ol' stinky catfish explained that to his friends , or worse, his wife . ''You were caught by a pink Barbie pole''-who is she is she prettier than me ?'' I want a divorce .''
