you can gauge the age and prosperity of a civilization by the amount of garbage it produces. Young civilizations in the expansion years squander resources quickly and generate huge piles of garbage. Old civilizations, short on resources and about to morph into something new, generate very little garbage.
The little fish were as easy as little fish ever get, they’re expert at robbing hooks of bait but when you do hook them they just pop out of the water.

Carp fight like hell and would be as popular as salmon if there was anything appealing about them in culinary terms. I only missed having a fishing reel a little bit, when I was playing with the carp.
