The conflict in this story happens after Sheila says, “I think fishing’s dumb,” and the main character doesn’t want her to think they’re dumb because they like fishing, so they play along and pretend to also dislike fishing, all while trying to catch a bass without Sheila finding out. The type of conflict here is internal because, on one hand, the main character wants to impress Sheila (who thinks fishing is dumb), but on the other hand, they love fishing and have to opportunity to catch this huge bass.
