Fishing Holiday

Fishing Holiday

“What bait we usin’?”

“Whatever works.”

“You don’t know what works?”

“Why would I? I’ve never been here before.”

“Then how’d you know where to take us?”

“It was a guess.”

“And you just happened to jump to a planet with such a serene spot?”

“Navcomputers track lots of variables.”

“One of them can’t be fishing spots.”

“You’d be surprised.”


“But you still don’t know what bait to use.”

“I don’t even know if there are fish here.”

“Or something resembling fish.”

“Well part of the fun of fishing is not knowing if you’re going to catch something.”

“But is it?”

“I don’t know.”

“Have you ever been fishing before?”


“Then why are we here?”

“Seemed like a fun thing to try?”

“Shouldn’t we have done it somewhere or with someone where we’re guaranteed to catch something.”


“So we know if it’s fun.”

“But is that fishing?”

“Yes, yes it is!”

“Are you sure? Cause I took it to be everything around catching an actual fish.”

“Where would you get an idea like that?”

“The Fishing Channel.”

“Then why aren’t we in some bait shop that smells like solvent talking to some yokel?”

“What does that have to do with fishing?”

“Seems like the only thing they do on The Fishing Channel.”

“Ah, naw. There’s a lot of sitting, staring off into the distance. Whispering now and then.”

“But no catching fish?”

“I only watch two minutes.”
