Dwayne Johnson Enjoys 'Daddy-Daughter Bonding' with a Little Fishing

Dwayne Johnson, otherwise known as "The Rock," knows the value of introducing his kids to fishing.

Who doesn't love a little father-daughter time spent on the water, catching fish and learning about the joys of the great outdoors?

If you needed any further convincing, there's a familiar face on Instagram proving this notion to be true. Dwayne Johnson, whose journey to stardom stretched from the professional wrestling ring to major motion pictures, is now spending part of his days doing one of the things he loves most: fishing in his own fishing pond.

And the only thing better than fishing in your own pond is fishing with your own offspring, and sharing that love and appreciation with the next generation.

In case you didn't know, The Rock has dedicated a lot of time and effort to honing his fishing skills over the years.

Here's video evidence that proves yes, Dwayne Johnson is a girl dad, and he's dang good at that gig.

The 49-year-old is raising his daughters Tiana, 3, and Jasmine, 5, with his wife Lauren Hashian. 

"'That's so cool!' Mission accomplished," Johnson wrote in the caption of the Instagram post. "Pulled in their first bass and they absolutely loved it. Great day with the ohana and bonding with my little ladies."

While we're commending him, how about the size of that fish?! That's no ordinary pond bass, and knowing he's got the chops to pull a largemouth of that stature out of the pond should be reassuring that he certainly knows his stuff.

The Bass Pro Shops hat is a nice touch, too.

We could all take a lesson from The Rock's playbook. Introducing young women to the great outdoors, and instilling a sense of curiosity and wonder among the elements you'll find outside the confines of a home in an urban area, is the greatest kind of gift you can give to your kids.

In our mind's eye, it's moves like these that we'd love to see more of. When was the last time you took your kids fishing?
