When it comes to Elton John and his sons, you might assume they would have similar interests like their iconic dad, but that’s not the case for his 10-year-old son, Zachary.

John’s husband David Furnish told U.K.’s The Mirror that Zachary is “obsessed” with fishing saying, “He’s done lake fishing, he’s done sea fishing but he hasn’t done fly fishing so we’re able to get a couple of days up north (Canada) to introduce him to fly fishing which he absolutely loved.”

Furnish added, “I love that he’s embraced fly-fishing so much – there’s so many distractions for kids today with phones, iPads and video games, internet and television and everything.”

As for whether he and Elton have much experience fishing, Furnish said, “I’ve caught some fish off a dock when I was ten in Canada, that’s the extent of my fishing experience and Elton I don’t think has even fished at all.”

If this means we might get to see Sir Elton don a pair of fishing waders for a fun family outing, then this hobby of Zachary’s has some unexpected benefits.
