Stripping the line twice with my left hand, I had it jerked out of my fingers by a slamming force I was just not expecting. I had been told, but I did not believe. The guide just grinned at the wide-eyed me, knowing another was now a believer in the strength of the legendary piranha.

One thought on “The Next Frontier in Gamefish?”
“Ben, I want to say just one word to you. Are you listening?”
Apologies, Mike Nicholls, for borrowing the pool party dialogue in The Graduate.
But to another movie – John Sayles’s 1978 “Piranha”, the best B-movie horror spoof ever. At the end of it, the only partly defeated super-piranha head out to sea (like some British escapee rainbows I was writing about the other day) with an unspoken toothy message: “We will return, bigger, toothier, meaner and making even louder screechy noises when we go into a feeding frenzy.”
Piranha. I’ve had more than an accidental bycatch few, but then again too few to bother to mention….
Apologies – merely a madcap response to the latest instalment of the completely fishy preposterous.
