Fishing in Paris

There are many ways of fishing, however, American author and Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck preferred the Parisian style of fishing. In this essay, he describes with his unique perceptive and in humorous fashion, how different it is from the American and British styles of fishing; here presented in Anniversary Gregg and transcribed by me for the blog.

  1. That took me a while to read, but it was well worth it. I did have to look up a few words from the original text — mostly it was me not thinking it through (eg. “bread” I kept trying to read “breed” which made no sense, “worm” I tried to read “woman”, and “sews” I tried to read “sauce”), which I guess is something I need to work on. I did like the phrase for “most of the time”.

    I’m planning on giving it a few days and then trying to read through it a second time, hopefully faster and with fewer reading errors.

    Thanks, Carlos, for posting this!
