You're going fishing!

Riley lights a cigarette, leaning forward against the ship's guardrail. Below, the misty waters of the river seep around the hull. He watches distractedly as a passenger appears on the promenade, carrying an assortment of fishing lines and tackle. The man spends some time agonising over the bait, then arranges himself daintily on the railing and plops the line into the water.

A moment later, with an excited shout, he disappears into the mist, accompanied by the unmistakeable sound of a large, wet, gulp.

“The fish are out again,” someone says, passing.

“Aye,” Riley says, and puffs at his cigarette.
