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.

G- I think that he is going to choose the fish because Sheila and him are not compatible. They are interested in different activities.

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. I was able to come up with the following possibilities: If he decides to go with the girl, he wouldn’t fish as much because they have different preferences on activities. But if he goes with the fish, he wouldn’t get to go out with Sheila Mant
