Fable Aesop
The Fisherman And His Nets
printer friendly version
A Fisherman, engaged in his calling, made a very successful cast
and captured a great haul of fish. He managed by a skillful handling
of his net to retain all the large fish and to draw them to the shore;
but he could not prevent the smaller fish from falling back through
the meshes of the net into the sea.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
