  1. My little kid loved the poem and me too. Fishing is my hobby and this poem brings out the happiness one gets out of it.

  2. I love gone fishing because one of my hobbies is fishing and when I saw this book it caught my eye so I went to read it and it was a poem and my favorite thing to write is poems.

  3. I love this book. I like poems, but this one was my favorite of them all. Gone Fishing is kind of funny at some points, and others times it's been serious. I love the way the poems are written. I love that some of the poems are written all over the place.
