He could choose the girl. One reason he could choose the girl is the fact that she is pretty; the reader knows this because he has watched her, and he notices the little details about her like her hair. However, he could choose the fish instead. A reason that he could choose the fish is because this would be the biggest fish that he ever caught. After reading 5 pages in “The Bass, The River, and Sheila Mant” , I can question if the boy will choose the girl or the fish.
Justin Houge Due Date: Friday 25th Journal 1 I am reading “ The Bass, the river, and Sheila Mant” by W.D Wetherell.

G pick bass or Sheila Y bass R loves it R knows a lot R big/ impressive Y Sheila R hot!!!!!! R says yes R lies about fish G I think he is going to pick Shelia As I read the story, I wonder whom the little boy will pick Shelia or the bass.
Fishing is a hobby and a sport, people have different tastes in what they like to do. Some like to go to the fishing tournaments because they like the competition that goes with it, while other fish just to relax. Good ways to do that is to use a fishing method called trolling. To troll for fish you get a heavy-duty rushing rod and reel set up and you put the boat at a cruising speed of about 5 mph. if you are on the right spots you can catch and abundance of fish but if you’re not you probably won’t do so good here are some reasons why I like to fish.
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. Duck hunting is a very social kind of hunt and that means it calms my spirit. Hunters experience nature in such a way that they become part of it, and when that experience is shared with another human, it forms a bond like no other. Some of the best conversations I’ve ever had took place sitting in a duck blind, waiting for the ducks to fly overhead.
This is where the sacrifice comes in. He doesn’t give up Sheila, but he gives up huge bass that has kept snagging on the narrator’s fishing line. It is the biggest bass that he has ever seen or caught, and he probably will never find a bass like that ever again. But then, Sheila Mant is equally impressive. And it is impossible to have both, though the narrator keeps trying to keep the bass on the line, until he has to cut it.
In both stories, they included wish granting fish, an important moral that is learned, and both of the main characters feared something. In “What, of This Goldfish, would You Wish?” there was “a deep-sea goldfish” that was owned by Sergei, which was able to grant three wishes, and Sergei had used those wishes for unselfish reasons. The first wish was “...used up when they discovered a cancer in his sister.” The second wish “Sergei used up five years ago, on Sveta's boy...it wasn't for Sveta that he'd done it, that he'd wished his wish purely for the boy.” The final wish was then used to save the boy that he had killed on accident. His wishes were used for good purposes and did what was right, even if it cost him and even if he feared he was going to lose his magical goldfish. Unlike “What, of This Goldfish, would You Wish?”, in the story “The Fisherman and His Wife” the wishes from the “enchanted prince” flounder was used for greed and power.
Chrislyn Atkinson P.8 Screenplay Critique The movie Big Fish is a film about a young man by the name of Edward Bloom and how he really liked telling stories. In the movie Edward finds out he has cancer and has very little time to live so his son Will, who he hasn’t talked to in several years, comes back to see his dad. I personally liked this film because it was really interesting and had lots of different symbols and themes so you could see it and take it anyway you wanted and it was really funny! To begin, growing up Will was always told all of these awesome and entertaining stories but when he got older he realized that they were just for fun and they were all fake. Then at Wills wedding party his dad was telling the story of the big fish he caught while Will was being born.
As the story continues the boy is forced to make a decision, he needs to chose between a girl and fishing. He has the biggest bass he has ever had on the line and on page 4 he decided; “I pulled a penknife from my pocket and cut the line in half.” Later on page 4 he later said, “...and I never made the same mistake again.” These last two excerpts represent the young boy making a hard decision, realizing it was a bad one, overcoming it, moving on and choosing not to make that mistake again. Making the fourteen year old one step further in the steps from childhood to
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.
Also, dolphins are quite the social animals. I am an exceedingly social person, it takes just a little bit of time for me to warm up to someone, and when I do warm up to you I do not shut up. Also, dolphins love the water. I also love the water, my grandparents used to live on a lake so as long as I can remember I’ve been around water. I love to swim and be in the
G pick bass or Sheila? Y bass R favorite past time R big R Sheila… realizes Y Sheila R Big crush R Attracted to her R Date G I think he will go for the fish Will the narrator pick the Bass or Sheila? He may pick the Bass. Firstly, the boy might pick the bass is because it is his favorite past time. He has a lot of knowledge about fishing; he knows what a bass sounds like from a splash.
The people had many methods of catching the fish, the most drastic one was by using harpoons. In order to do this, they had to stab the fish while in a canoe and put the fish in the storage section. This proved to be more useful when catching larger fish such as swordfish, or blue tuna. The most effective method of catching salmon was by using large nets shaped like a V to catch hundreds of fish at a time. This was very useful because one thousand fish could easily feed a family for a whole year.
The type of plastic bait that you attach is usually a plastic worm or lizard of some size (Chen). This bait is one of my most common baits that I personally use. It is great almost anywhere and the only thing that the fisherman has to worry about is if they choose the right plastic worm or lizard. The Texas, Carolina, and the Florida rig both use the technique of
He was more focused on the fish then he was with Sheila. Sheila was trying to talk to him but his mind went all to thinking of the fish. The other option he has is to pick Sheila. He has always had a huge crush on Sheila. He would take time out of his day to watch every move she would do, sometimes he would watch her tan or go swimming.
