Lesson 20 One man in a boat 独坐孤舟 ​

Fishing is my favourite sport.

I often fish for hours without catching anything.

But this does not worry me.

Some fishermen are unlucky.

Instead of catching fish, they catch old boots and rubbish.

I am even less lucky.

I never catch anything -- not even old boots.

After having spent whole mornings on the river, I always go home with an empty bag.

'You must give up fishing!' my friends say.

'It's a waste of time.'

But they don't realize one important thing.

I'm not really interested in fishing.

I am only interested in sitting in a boat and doing nothing at all!
