One father is taking his role very seriously as he begins teaching his young son the beauty of fishing in what is perhaps our favorite viral video yet!
Little Teddy was well-equipped for his fishing trip with dad as he sported his life vest complete with a rubber ducky.
Teddy is first seen casually standing on a small wooden dock as he eagerly pulls in his fishing rod a bit too quickly, swinging around his freshly captured fish in his direction. After letting out an unexpected scream in fear of what is said to be his very first catch, Teddy’s dad exclaims, “I think you got a fish! Pull it up!” The little boy pulls his line from the water and angles it over to his father who is filled with pride and excitement!
“I got one,” shouts Teddy, quickly trying to convince his dad to pet his newest catch! As his dad explains that his hands are full and encourages the little fisherman to pet the fish himself, Teddy freezes up. “What name is he?” Teddy asks his dad, who gave the boy the choice of picking his own original name for his first fish. “Free,” Teddy says, naming his catch perhaps the most ironic name possible.
After admiring the fish and exclaiming how “beautiful” he his, Teddy finally musters up the courage to touch his fish, as he proudly tells his dad, “I touched him,” amidst his beaming smile!
It’s refreshing to see such a young boy enjoying the great outdoors! Nice work, Teddy!
