My Kiddo Pranks - Part 3 - Fishing

Well, today I would like to tell you about my fishing trip. We used to go to near by fields to play. There were a lot of ponds in which we used to swim. Not exactly swimming 'coz I still don't know swimming. The ponds were about as deep as 4 to 8 feet. So, we used to do a bit of walking and swimming. The most interesting time to swim is the rainy season. At that time, the water will be high and there will be a lot of fishes, crabs, snails and all. I used to catch these with my hands and will let go. Soon, I got an Idea to bring some fish to home, not to eat, but to keep it in a tank.
Next day, My gang and I went with a big towel and a bucket. You might be wondering why towel to catch fish? LOL. Well, that's the way we caught, that way we can get a lot at once. So, we went to the pond. Put the towel, deep into the water, stretched it and then pulled it up. Guess what, the entire water will be filtered out through the towel, while the fishes remain jumping inside,
 gasping for breath. So, we will put these into the bucket filled with water. Some of the fishes will jump out of the bucket into the pond. So, we closed it with a banana leaf. There were times, when I caught fishes which were nearly 8 inches in length.
So, after the successful fishing, with a bucket full of fishes, we went home 
happy. We put it in a big tank and filled only enough water so that the fishes won't jump out. What happened was, it was summer holidays and after a few days, our schools reopened. So, one weekend we came home and saw all the fishes lying dead there. The tank had dried up and since we were at the school the whole week days, we forgot to fill the tank. 
I should say that this incident had a deep impact on our gang. we felt really sad to mass murder these fishes which were living happily in the pond. After the incident, we never went fishing again.
