This 18-inch trout was caught by Mckenna Flannagan, 6, of Wexford, at a pond in Armstrong county. She was with her father Patrick. She caught this fish on a Barbie fishing rod. The fish broke her reel while she was bringing it in because of its weight. This was her first time to go fishing on the first day of trout season. There is no doubt that this has begun a lifelong love of fishing and the outdoors for this young lady. The picture was taken by her father at home after the fish was cleaned. She insisted on the paper towels.
