Barbie I Can Be... Fishing Kit Review (Shakespeare)

Barbie I Can Be... Fishing Kit
What It Is

The Barbie I Can Be... Fishing Kit is part of Shakespeare's line of fishing kits for kids. It features a Barbie-themed all-in-one rod and reel with line, which measures two feet six inches. It also comes with a casting plug shaped like a blue fish, which weighs down the end of the line to practice an accurate release on dry land before heading for the waters. To practice casting, start with your thumb down on the reel's top blue button. Focus on a point in front of you, bring the rod back over your shoulder, and, when you're ready, whip it forward and release the button. It works best if you release the thumb button when the rod is swinging forward and directly over your head or slightly past that.

Is It Fun?

For parents looking to introduce their kids to the sport and for young anglers looking for a fun way to practice their casting skills during any season, this is a really solid practice tool. We also like how its Barbie theme brings a girly flare to traditional fishing gear.

Who It’s For

Shakespeare's Barbie I Can Be... Fishing Kit is for ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

This rod features a right reel-handle position. Most reels can be alternated between hands without an issue and when it comes to fishing go with what feels most comfortable for you.

Don't release your thumb from the button until you are ready to cast as this will release the line.
