After a day good fishing on Logan Lake, amateur fisherman Oliver is walking from the pier carrying two mackerel in a bucket. He is approached by a Protection Officer who asks him for his fishing license.
Oliver says to the officer, “I was not fishing and I did not catch these mackerels, they are my pets. Every day I come down to the water and dump these fish into the water and take them for a walk to the end of the pier and back. When I’m ready to go I whistle and they jump back into the bucket and we go home. The officer not believing him, tells him that it is unlawful to fish without a license.
Oliver turns to the officer and says, “If you don’t believe then watch me,” as he throws the mackerel back into the water.
The officer says, “Now whistle to your fish and show me that they will jump out of the water and into the bucket.”
Oliver turns to the officer and says, “What fish?”
