So I headed off alone with a chunk of bacon and the green fishnet from Josephine to the eastern shore of our island, where I sat on a rock. And now I’ll continue to write in another time. It was very calm early in the morning and the sun was already very high in the sky because sunrise is really early, at ½ past three. With a chunk of bacon as bait I lured small fish. And whenever a shoal of them quarrelled over the bacon I slowly and silently moved the net underneath them. A shoal like this is small, because the fish are really very small. A fish is roughly this large or this small: When the net was underneath the shoal I lifted it up and whoosh 10 small fish were in it. I caught a pail full, around 100 fish and even more. Now they are swimming in the soup.
