Angler Jocumsen takes time out for sick young boy

TOOWOOMBA'S champion angler Carl Jocumsen has made the day of a young sick boy during his trip overseas.

He took nine-year-old Mikey out on a fishing trip after hearing the boy was currently undergoing treatment for aggressive brain cancer.

He was diagnosed with cancer in March after severe headaches and vomiting.

Mr Jocumsen heard Mikey loved fishing and knew he wanted to do something to make a small difference in the young boy's life.

The pair spend the afternoon on the water and Mr Jocumsen shared fishing tips with Mikey while they tried to catch as many bass as they could.

The Toowoomba fisherman said Mikey was a true hero.

"He has a passion for fishing and when I heard his story we were packed up and driving to Arkansas to get him out on the water," he said.

"To see fishing put a smile on his face was beyond words for me. It was a day I'll never forget."
