It was definitely unusual to see him standing there. This was not one of his usual haunts, and he hoped he wasn’t going to make things difficult.
The two stared at each other, neither backing down. One was curious, one stunned.
The question was, who was going to catch the bigger fish?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    The clue’s in the name: I’m betting on the fish eagle

    The eagle, of course! Great take on the prompt.

    Fishermen are very territorial when it comes to their favorite fishing spots!

  4. The guy doesn’t stand a chance. He’d be wise to head downstream! Nice one, Di.

    No human can out-fish an eagle. He needs that “eagle eye”. 🙂

    wonderful story Di! 😘

  7. James McEwan says:

    Territorial rights. I am sure the eagle is a more experienced fisher.

  8. Bear says:

    Unique perspective… This story could go so many ways. It’s a good imagination prompt. Thanks!

  9. GHLearner says:

    Good question and once again well told in few words.

  10. Great stand off. I admire the human’s pluck but the eagle will win every time.
