The small town of Anagnos on the Grecian coast enjoyed a reputation for great fishing. Part of this was due to the exploits and the sage advice blog of The Fish Expert.
Stewart trudged along the beach past tourists and sunbathers to join his fishing friends. When he joined them, he began baiting his hooks with Tuna.
Anatolio shook his head at Stewart. He held up his tablet with The Fish Expert blog. “The Expert says you need Halibut right now.”
“Cor!” complained Stewart. “All I’ve got is Tuna.”
“Have some of mine.”
In the waters beyond the beach, a random mutation granted a group of octopuses outstanding intelligence.
“I love fishing,” said the octopus, Floo.
“Me too!” agreed Ooridoo, plucking some Halibut off a hook. “It’s the easy way to feed.”
“I’m getting bored with Halibut, though.”
“Yeah. Maybe some Orange Roughy.”
Floo opened his waterproof tablet and logged into his The Fish Expert account. He wrote:
Halibut is losing efficacy. Orange Roughy is what the skilled angler baits his hooks with now.
