There was a man one time called Mark Mullen. He went fishing down to Cowar, killing bream. When he had half a score killed he thought of a trick. He pulled out one of the fishe's eyes and put a small hook in his tail. The next he went down to the same place and started killing the same sort of fish. After a while he caught the same fish with a glass eye in his head. He got surprised to learn that there were doctors in the sea.
