The Fisherman and The Dancing Fish

Once there was a fisherman who played sweet music on his flute. One day, he took his flute and the fish basket and sat on a high rock to catch fish. He began to play his flute thinking that the fish attracted by the sweet music of his flute would leap into his fish basket. But no fish came around.

He went home; brought his net and cast it. He caught more than basketful of fish. The fish were still alive, twisting and jumping into the net.

“What stupid fish!” said the fisherman. “When I played the flute they didn’t dance, but now, when I am not playing my flute, they are dancing.’
