The Fisherman and his flute

The Fisherman and his flute:


There was once a fisherman who was also an excellent flute player.

One day he took his flute and a fish basket, jumped up on a rock and began to play his flute, convinced, the fish would be enchanted by his music and leap into the basket willingly.

Unfortunately, he did not catch a single fish, so went home, collected his net and threw it into the water. He caught so many fish that his basket overflowed.

'Stupid creatures!' he exclaimed, as he watched the fish twist and jump in his net. 'You would not dance, when I played my flute, but when I'm not playing, you can not stop dancing!'
