The narrator in “The Bass, The River, and Sheila Mant” showed reflectiveness in the short story by saying that there will be more Sheila Mants and more fish in his life. At the end of the short story the narrator shows how he reflected on the summer and his time with Sheila. “There would be other Sheila Mants in my life, other fish, and though I came close once or twice, it was these secret, hidden tuggings in the night that claimed me, and I never made the same mistake again.” (Wetherell 4). This shows that the narrator is reflective because he sums up what happened and shows that he won’t make the same mistake again. By the narrator saying “... and I never made the same mistake again” from the quote shows that he knows what went wrong

This is shown on page 19: “‘Keep the blanket around you,’ the boy said.

Tone and word choice serves to create a compelling narrative. The very first chapter draws the reader in with a description of the ‘black ships’ sailing in Edo Bay. One chapter recounts a delightful little story in Abe Masahiro’s childhood. Supposedly, when he was just a boy, Abe admired the goldfish in the pond of his father’s colleague. And when he refused the offer to take the fish home, his father counseled him on the wisdom of refusal.
Another reason I think he might choose the bass is because he has invested a lot of time and money into fishing. He has high quality fishing equipment, and he puts his fishing rod in the boat without thinking about it. The last reason I think he could pick the bass is because he is ignoring Sheila because of a bass. 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.

We walked to the canal about to saddle up to our favorite “secret” fishing spot and it was fenced in and had a big sign that said something to the effect of construction and stay out. No big deal, we moved down and found a new site…the next week houses started to go up and the fish did not seem to be as hungry. Eventually the canal smelled as the fish were dying off and floating quite eerily in the water—that was the end of my summer fishing with my dad. As irony would have it, the next month, we got new neighbors who moved from a little town in New York
Our dad saw him on the golf course earlier that day, and he scooped him up into a Gatorade bottle with water. My siblings and I were immediately infatuated with Drowny. Drowny was really cool. He would tuck his legs into his shell and look like a rock, and he would swim around while doing water flips. Nora would read books like Go Dog, Go to Drowny and Chika would say good morning and good night to him.
