I was walking about town when I saw a peculiar sight.
A man fishing from his roof
‘Odd,’ I thought ‘I’m no fisherman but maybe that’s what fly fishermen do.’
But that flying fish was putting up quite a fight.
As he frantically cranked the wheel and pulled the baby in, he caught me staring from the road.
“I’m a professional fisherman!” he said.
I started to say “You can take the fisherman from the sea …” but at that point he’d reeled his kite in far enough for me to see.
Pardon the picture quality. I wasn’t really prepared for this.
