A fisherman who was a fine musician took his flute and his nets to the seashore. Standing on a rock, he threw his nets into the sea and then played several tunes in the hope that the fish, attracted by his melody, would dance into his net. At last, having waited a long time, he put down his flute, and casting his net into the sea, made an excellent haul of fish. When he saw them leaping about in the net upon the rock he said: "Oh, you perverse creatures, when I played you would not dance, but now that I have stopped you do so merrily."
