Tom: Then we replace the live grasshopper with an artificial grasshopper fly. We still use the bobber and push button rod to show them that an artificial fly is just another way to catch fish.

Child: Grasshopper.

Tom: It looks like a grasshopper. See it's got legs, it's got wings, it's got that little red stuff, and it's got a fat head. Doesn't it look like a hopper?

Child: Yes.

Tom: Just like with that real grasshopper, we can't throw this very far. So we can't just put it on that line, right?

Child: Right.

Tom: We've got to have some weight to get it out there. So what's the weight that's going to get the . . .

Child: The bobber.

Tom: The bobber. Okay. So I'm going to tie on this fake grasshopper. Twitch it. Okay, stop. There's one looking at it. Oh, you got it. You got it on a fake grasshopper. What do you think? Pretty cool?

Child: Yeah.

Reemplazamos el señuelo vivo por uno artificial de mosca. Aún utilizamos cañas de pescar convencionales, y también push button para mostrarles que la pesca con mosca artificial es otra forma de pescar. Luce como un saltamontes, tiene patas, alas, esta pequeña cosa roja y una cabeza gorda. ¿Se ve como un saltamontes?

- [Niñas] Sí, sí.

- Así como con los saltamontes reales, no podemos arrojarlos muy lejos, solo debemos ponerlos en esa línea, ¿okey?

- Correcto.

- Hay una manera de arrojarlo allí, ¿cuál es?

- Con la cuerda.

- Correcto, con la cuerda. Voy a atar este saltamontes.

- Okey, para, parece que.. ¡Oh! ¡Lo tienes! Lo pescaste con un saltamontes falso, ¿qué piensas? ¿Fue genial?

- Sí.
