In this book, a little girl named Karly, tells of her experiences fishing with her Daddy. She tells of family members who sometimes go with them, and the odd names of places they fish. Children may notice that Karly listens and learns, from the things Daddy tells her. Almost every page has a quote of something "Daddy says". She describes the wind on her face, while boat riding and feeling safe sitting close to Daddy when fishing after dark, in spite of the sounds of "critters crawling through the grass". She even confesses to keeping Daddy busy baiting her hook, and removing the "icky, slippery" fish, she catches. As a bonus, the back cover features pictures of fish, with common and scientific names.
