Fishing for Piranhas

One morning one of the guides said - let's go fishing for pirhanas. Then he remarked - In Hollywood pirhanas eat people; on the Amazon people eat pirahanas.

We entered a little river looking for a likely spot. It was pretty nice in there.

Much of the time I felt a nibble and when I jerked the rod a biot and raised the hook was empty. I never caugth a Pirhana, but did catch some other small fish. Nut others of us caught some. And then they lit a fire under a small cooker, cooked them and they we ate them.. They are pretty bony.
