I was inspired to make this model today. I'd been thinking of making a fishing MOC for a while.
The model kind of evolved on it's own. Originally I was only going to make the dad, but then I thought it would cuter with a little kid added.
I also gave them both fish at first, but that didn't seem "right." So then I got the inspiration to give the dad a boot. But then it looked like the dad was unhappy that he hadn't gotten a fish so I put his arm around his son's shoulder to show that he was happy for his son.
Nothing is "cheated" on this model. The only thing unofficial is the thread that makes the fishing line. If you are wondering, there is a small bit of technic flex tubing holding the thread in place.
You can see larger images on my Flickr photostream.
