Protected from the rain by sturdy ponchos, we dangle meat into the water to entice the fearsome pirhanna to bite. Fishing for pirhanna invovles first stirring up the water with a viscious stroke, perhaps to emulate something thrashing about at the water's edge. Then, hold the wooden pole inches off the deceptively calm surface to wait for a nibble. Once felt, jerk suddenly up to catch the fish in action, hauling the catch into the air. As shown, I caught as deadly a beast as ever could be found, surely a menace to the surrounding villages that would be joyously missed. However, due to incomprehensible laws that I'll forever lament, I was forced to let this murderous man-eating creature back into the water to wreak havoc upon the defenseless villagers. For unleashing this hideous evil upon the world when I held the key to salvation in my hand, I will forever seek forgiveness.
