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.

Wildwood Falls has a history of killing young swimmers, who come to the pool during the summer to cool off. She lures them into her cool, refreshing waters, while lulling them into believing nothing bad is going to happen.

As a leader Odysseus should be careful to do exactly what will benefit his crew the most. The lack of communication throughout the whole journey home will eventually lead to mistrust and betrayal of Odysseus by his crew. Following Scylla and Charybdis they reach the island of the god of the sun, and because of the crew’s spite for Odysseus they don’t follow his directions not to harm the cattle of the Sun.

Odysseus’ inability to be a great leader for the group leads to a lot of conflict among the crew members.
Piggy is characterized by his weight and easy to ridicule, but is much more complex under the surface. Through all insults thrown at him, Piggy stays good natured, he works primarily what is best for the group rather than his own desires. Piggy lacks social skill, which is partially why he isn’t chief, which leads to more criticism from the others. Because of his lack of social skill, Piggy doesn’t have much of a voice in the group and relies on the conch to have a say in discussions. A large part of Piggy’s character is his lack of self esteem, supported by his comment, “I don’t care what they call me...

Later in the story, when this boy finally asks his neighbor Sheila out on a date, on Page 2 it stated, “I got in the canoe early and started paddling in a huge circle.”

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.
Like I said most people fish because it is such a fun time. I became very attached to fishing and then got made fun of it because people don’t understand it. Not every time you go fishing you’re going to catch fish and get frustrated, so you got to just suck it up and wait until the next time you go fishing. Fishing is a very popular sport that many people travel around the world to participate in. Fishing is not only fun, but is a huge part of our history.
