Fish Boy.

Extracts from this document...


Saturday, February 24, 2001 Fish Boy Ernest Christopher Smith (who likes to be known as Ernie) is a studious boy, who lives in the town of Lower Ashford at 43 Evergreen Street, in a fine house that is almost the size of a mansion. Ernie is 13 years old, he is an only child and he goes to Lower Ashford Middle school for boys. Anyone who is a friend of Ernie's would know that he has a very immense passion for fishing, in fact you would be extremely lucky to find him without a fishing rod or a book about fishing. If you step into his room by accident you could probably mistake it for a library as it has so many books stacked on its' shelves. Whilst Ernie walks to school in the mornings by himself, he always reads a book about fishing. ...read more.


At first he thought it was a dog but then he realized, someone was waiting for him outside the door. Ernie was delighted about this and at once, he asked this boy why he was there. The boy replied, "I am here to see you, I saw you with some books about fishing the other day and I wondered whether you wanted a challenge to see who could catch the biggest fish". Ernie was very pleased that someone else had an interest in fishing and he said with joy in his heart, "Of course I want a challenge, how about the winner gets �5 and by the way, what is your name?" The boy answered, "Okay then, we will meet up on Saturday at your house at 9 0 clock and we will walk up to the river, oh and my name is Jake Richards, but you can call me J". ...read more.


Ernie laughed at his rod but Jake said, "I don't care how bad it is, I bet I will beat you anyway". They were fishing for 4 hours and Jake had not caught anything but Ernie had caught a 10cm long fish, so he was in the lead at the moment. Jake asked if they could fish for one more hour and Ernie accepted the offer, but he had made the wrong decision because an absolutely enormous fish swam down the river and got wedged inside the metal of Jake's makeshift fishing rod. Ernie was absolutely astounded by this and his face went as red as a strawberry, but he knew he had lost so he handed over his �5. Ernie realized that just because he had all the top quality equipment and books, it didn't mean that he would win. Friends were more precious than belongings. After all this Ernie became firm friends with Jake and they went fishing very frequently together. Tomas Garvey 8a ...read more.

    Furthermore, the way I took readings was not completely reliable; I counted the number of knots that were submerged. Taking readings by inspection like this is prone to a small margin of error, and the knots themselves may not have been evenly spaced anyway, despite my efforts to tie them at regular intervals next to a metre-rule.
