This is a fiction short story".You see the ways the fisherman doth take "To catch the fish; what engines doth he make? "Behold! how he engageth all his wits, "Also his snares, lines, angles, hooks, and nets: "Yet fish there be, that neither hook nor line, "Nor snare, nor net, nor engine can make thine; "They must be groped for, and be tickled too, "Or they will not be catch'd, whate'er you do". Are there any fish in the river to which you are going? II. Having settled the above question in the affirmative, get some person who knows the water to show you whereabout the fish usually lie; and when he shows them to you, do not show yourself to them. III. Comparatively coarse fishing will succeed better when you are not seen by the fish, than the finest when they see you. IV. Do not imagine that, because a fish does not instantly dart off on first seeing you, he is the less aware of your presence; he almost always on such occasions ceases to feed, and pays you the compliment of devoting his whole attention to you, whilst he is preparing for a start whenever the apprehended danger becomes sufficiently imminent.
