One day, Alan, a friend of mine, who likes country life, was fishing in a river, when he caught a trout he tried topush the fish in but slipped off the hook, flew over his head and landed in a field behind him.Alan put down his rod, went through the gate and started searching for his trout. Some people, obviously from there were having a picnic in the field. One of the men shouted "what on earth are you doing? Thinking that it was a question because they could see how he was dressed, Alan replied "fishing", Don't be silly'; the fish don't live in fields! He turned to his friends, laughing, thinking that he had made a good joke. 'Oh but they do' said Alan. They jump out of the river to look for flies and I catch them with my hands. At that moment he found his trout in the grass and picked it up and showed it to the picnickers. He put it in his basket and bent down as if he was hunting for another one. The picnickers no longer laughing spent the rest of the day searching the fields.
