Carrie Underwood can write songs, sing, run an athleisure wear business, write a book and co-parent two young boys, but did you know she can also fish?

The superstar and her husband, former NHL star Mike Fisher, recently escaped for a weekend together and took some time to enjoy one of their favorite pastimes:  fly fishing. Fisher, however, wasn’t too thrilled that his wife caught a bigger fish than he did.

“This past weekend we were able to get away for some good quality time. One thing we love to do together is fly fish but the thing I don’t like about it is she catches bigger fish,” he joked on Instagram.

The hockey star then shared a side-by-side image of his tiny fish alongside Underwood’s big catch.

The couple has been laying low due to the coronavirus pandemic. Underwood and Fisher, who recently celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary, have taken up a few new hobbies to keep themselves occupied while at home.  The couple took up beekeeping this summer and they also have a large garden at their Tennessee farm to keep them busy.

This fall, Underwood will release her first-ever Christmas album, My Gift. The highly anticipated project arrives on September 25.
