I am reading “The Bass, The River, and Sheila Mant” by W.D Wetherell, and I am on page 5. This short story is about a boy, the narrator, that has a crush on a girl, Sheila Mant. He learns little details about her as he observes and analysis her. As the summer goes on, he finally makes the decision to ask her out on a date, soon he would face a challenge that, at that time, must have been the hardest decision he’s ever had to make. Being compelled to choose between getting the girl, or catching a bass that would have been considered the biggest catch.
However, Hoke wanted to transfer this concept of sacred space to touch multiple lives. An opportunity arose when Hoke needed a way to stay in contact with the men that no longer received his full attention. In “Fly Fishing with the Damned” Hoke begins fly-fishing with ex-gang members. To his surprise, the excursions along the Skagit River become so popular that whole families began to follow their pilgrimage into the wild. He even takes two men, Juan and Teddy to a fly-fishing class – transplanting their gang loyalties to a passion for nature: a new sacred space.
For example, during the August heat, the fish stop biting because they swim to the bottom of the river bed to keep cool. Peyton solves this problem with the help of Preacher Henry, who provides her with some helpful information that she needs to catch the bass. Frank writes, “‘How would I get them? Nobody’s been able to net any bass bait - no shiners.’ ‘That’s the trouble,’ Preacher said. ‘The little fish he gets hot too and so he’s out there in the middle deep…’ Peyton
One of the main symbols that was used many times in this film was the “Big Fish.” Multiple times in this film talks about the big fish that he caught and we can link it to many things throughout the movie. One of the things that the big fish symbolizes would be his wife. He talks about how many times that it took him to catch this fish and it also took numerous times to get his wife to see him and to love him but eventually she fell just as in love with him as he was with her from the moment he saw her. Another symbol displayed in the movies was with the master in the circus. It shows him as being a werewolf but as we later learn he never was.
Imagine a tremendous fish with a beard. In Elizabeth Bishop “The Fish” a person catches a big fish that has been hooked before.

The theme of the poem “The Fish” man over comes nature.
The characters of both stories made some good and bad choices for their wishes; wouldn 't you! In the fictional short story ‘What of This Goldfish, Would you wish’, Sergei Goralick, a Russian hermit living in Jaffa, was fishing on one of his valued late night fishing trips, when he caught a magical goldfish that granted him three wishes. He uses his first two wishes in order to help his friends, but is hesitant to use his last. Sergei knows that when he uses his third wish, he has to let his goldfish, who is now his best friend, free. One day, a boy named Yonatan comes to Sergei 's home, and asks him questions about what he would wish for.
In this story, “The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant,” this boy is willing to give up his entire reputation and passion for being a fisherman just because the pretty faced, inconsiderate, selfless girl thinks fishing is boring and not exciting. When the boy finally gets the courage to ask Sheila out of this concert thing with his boat through the river to be alone with her, he puts out a fishing line out of habit and picks the girl up, and she does not see the rod and just starts talking on and on about herself. Meanwhile, this boy has accidentally hooked the supposed biggest bass ever, and the girl does not realize because she is just too busy talking. Eventually, the boy cut the fishing line, and when they get to the actual concert, he realizes they have nothing in common.

His stories share strong messages about the ‘American Dream’, discrimination, and isolation. In “The Pearl”, Kino finds “the Pearl-of-the-World” and believes his pearl can bring his family out of poverty. However, instead, Kino’s hope for the pearl transforms into an obsession,”Her arm was up to throw when he leaped at her and caught her arm and wrenched the pearl from her. He struck her in the face with his clenched fist and she fell among the boulders, and he kicked her in the side. In the pale light he could see the little waves break over her, and her skirt floated about and clung to her legs as the water receded,” (Ch.
I was taught to cast a fishing line and how to handle a 12 gauge shotgun by my father and my Uncle Joe. We’d spend countless hours fishing for trout, but most of our time went towards duck hunting and it is still the best way for me to relax and clear my mind.

Some of the best conversations I’ve ever had took place sitting in a duck blind, waiting for the ducks to fly overhead.

You refused to let them place a salt lick outside the blind to attract deer. They said that it would be like shooting ducks, but you wouldn 't go for it. You told them, "We 're hunters, not city boys." You shot the only buck from that hunting trip and mounted it on the wall of your lake cottage. I remember the boathouse, the waves slapping the brick foundation, creaking ropes, chains, water lines on canvas, wood, dust in the
