"Oh boy, I caught a big one! I'm happy about it, you can tell by the smile on my face."
He's weighing the fish. About 50 pounds.
He's standing in a boat. Looks like a little paddle boat. In some kind of lake. Lake Somerville. Maybe not, with a 50 pound fish. Would have to be a bigger lake, maybe some kind of river. The Brazos River.
Fish swimming-shwish, shwish. Whhh-woosh-the sound of the ocean.
He's going to go show everybody what he caught.
His name is James.
He heard stories about fishing. He wanted to see what it's about and he saw one. He saw the fish. It's not a fairytale, it's true!
He's a big hmmm, hmmm. He's really proud of it.
A lot of people didn't realize there are fish that big. He proved them wrong.
There's a tree line in the back. Looks like they're leaning, some are about to fall down.
What's on his head? Looks like his hat is on the boat.
He hoped for a big fish and he got it! He's got to tell everybody what he caught. There are a lot of people on the Brazos River. And they said, " Yeah, he ain't lyin'! He caught it by himself."
And it's heavy.
He's close to shore, near a farm town, lights on a hill. He can't ENVISION it...this must be a dream, because you can't be at an ocean AND a hill. Dreams are imagination. And he thinks to himself, "Hey, I saw it with my own eyes. I took the picture for proof!"
