A Fisherman had no luck. Just before going home a large fish jumped into his boat making his day. Patience has its own reward.
A Monkey watched a Fisherman cast his nets and determined to try the same after the Fisherman left. Monkey got caught in the reeds and died. Too bad. Imitation is no substitute for knowledge.
A caught Fish pleads for life but the fisherman says no with no certainty of another. A little thing in hand is worth more than a great thing in prospect.
