The first reason I think this is because if he loves Shelia as much as he loves fishing. He was willing to try to find a new hobby or maybe Shelia will accept the fact that he loves to fish and learn to love it too. Second, he really knows a lot about fishing. He knows what kind of fish it is by the kind of splash it has. He also can tell what kind of fish it is by the amount of tug on the line by the fish.
Drifting is where you put the boat sideways from the wind and let the wind move you and you put poles out alongside the boat so they drift along about a foot above the lake bottom. While he was doing that I was cutting up the shad (bait). When my dad picked a spot to drift he grabbed some poles and we put bait and sinkers on them and set them out alongside the boat. We let them out alongside the boat where one pole is at 150 feet away and the other is about 175 feet away and the other is 200 feet away and the other is
He feels that the fish is a worthy opponent and should be honored, even though he doesn’t want to kill it he sees that it is necessary for him to do so. Another theme is that of pride. Santiago has a large amount of pride in himself and sees himself as worthy opponent for the fish since they are both of wisdom and worth. He respects everyone and everything. When he gets into port he does not flaunt the fish in its greatness.
When I started to fight the fish, he had been close to the boat because by grandpa had been unknowingly reeling in both of our fish. A few minutes later, the fish reached the boat and everyone got to see the massive striped bass that I caught. The best part of the catch was that I did not have to do all of the work for a great fish and my grandpa had to reel in two fish and his own fish happened to be a trash fish. I kept the fish and had it for dinner the following
“He is beautiful and noble and knows no fear of anything” (106). The fisherman brings to realization that they are respectful, beautiful, and fearless creatures that should be feared by him and the other fishermen.

The father and son may be getting older and spending less time together, but their love as father and son fortifies their relationship and prevents it from completely changing, which is exemplified when the father allows his son to use his rod to go fishing. The father’s rod is said to be “the only extravagance his father had had in his whole life” (45-46), meaning that the rod is of great significance to the father. Almost a whole paragraph is about how important the rod is to the father, and that’s not a detail included for decoration in Trumbo’s writing. Knowing that the father values his rod and invests time and money in it to
In the novella the Old Man and the Sea an old man named Santiago taught a boy named Manolin how to fish when the boy was very young. In the book, Santiago and Manolin are usually referred to as “the old man,” and “the boy.” In their time together on and off the skiff they formed a father-son relationship, however, Manolin’s parents said the old man was unlucky, so they made him other fishing arrangements. He went to fish with another boat, and caught three fish in the first week. At the beginning of the novella the reader is greeted with a description of the old man’s situation, “He was an old man who fished alone in a skiff in the Gulf Stream and he had gone eighty-four days now without taking a fish.” The first forty were with the boy, and
With the word “weaponlike”, the speaker portrays the fish as a soldier; he is a fighter to endure the pain and weight of the very thing that would have brought death upon him. The hooks, though unsightly and painful, are as precious as formal commendation for bravery or survival; they are “like medals with their ribbons frayed and wavering”(61-62). She respects the fish’s capacity for survival into old age, noting the “beard of wisdom” he has acquired from enduring to this very moment (63). In “The Fish”, Elizabeth Bishop expresses the impact of admiration for one’s survival of the trials and tribulations that life brings one’s way. Though aged and, at first sight, not deserving of respect or admiration, the adversity and pain that one endures makes

He would try hiding the fish from Shelia by dragging it across underwater. He tried not to lose the fish cause he thinks it is the biggest one he had got.
Fishing is not only fun, but is a huge part of our history. It is how many people survived back in the day. So the next time you see people hauling a boat don’t think of them as a bunch of rednecks. Just because you go fishing doesn’t mean you’re a country

Sheila is talking to him and all he can think about is the bass and he worries about losing the fish. The narrator could also pick Sheila.
