A boy's grandfather takes him on a day trip to go fishing on a boat. The boy is apprehensive because his grandfather uses different equipment than everyone else. But in the end the boy looks up to his grandfather because he sees that everyone accepts him. Good for children that think their grandparents don't relate to them.
