Fishing : Friday Fictioneers 12 December 2014

Copyright – Sandra Crook

“I tried the same spot on the pier the other day – ”
“And you had two water Lilliputs that day”
“Even the baits I stole from him didn’t work.”
“Have you seen his fishing rod? How does he catch those piles of fishes every day?”
“Either he has a witch girl friend or he is a pied piper”

As the morning sun shone over the pile of wood on the river bank, the fluorescent blue of the fishing rod slowly faded. Looking at his fishing rod among the pile of sticks, Pintu smiled and walked back with his pile of catch once again.


100 word flash fiction written for the “Friday Fictioneers” challenge managed by “Rochelle Wisoff-Fields“. For rest of the fellow fictioneer’s stories use the froggy link below.

Writing after a long break triggered by the holidays and extended by mood swings. Finally wify coaxed me to come back ! Good to be here again !

  1. This reminds of my best friend, as a kid she would tie a fishing line to a bamboo stick and catch fish like crazy, while grownup men standing beside her with expensive fishing rods walked away empty handed.
    Nice story.


  2. I had to admit I didn’t really get the story.. I might be a little sluggish..


  3. Dear Horus,
    This is an intriguing tale with a few veiled references. Overall, I found it enjoyable. A unique take on the prompt and a nice break from the general focus on rubbish or murder.
    All my best,
    Marie Gail


  4. Like Bjorn, I’m a wee bit confused. Like the focus on the bright blue piece of flotsam.


  5. one get all the fish and another nothing, luck is luck!


  6. So, I take it that he is enchanting a piece of wood or is one of them actually special? In any case, sounds like he has a real knack for fishing. 🙂


  7. I don’t know if I would eat those fish.


  8. Nice bit of whimsy about a boy with a special gift. Or maybe it’s the witch girlfriend?


  9. Nice story, but I’m still a bit confused about how or why his fishing rod worked…


  10. Dear Horus, Wow – a magical fishing rod – he could make a bundle of money off a magic rod! Very cute story! Thanks, Nan 🙂
