How to play the game

The aim of the game is to catch the fish with your fishing rod, by hooking them in the mouth with your hook. Place the fish in a large bowl, dangle your fishing rod over the bowl and try to hook them up using your fishing rod.

You can use this game at birthday parties and have a note with a prize writen on the back. This is a great way for kids to have some paper fun!
