Mayflies! -- and them's good bait! Trout'll just gobble 'em up like popcorn at the movies, if trout ever went to movies, which they don't, at least as far as I know. But if fish have schools, why shouldn't they go to movies? They must need something to do when school's out -- what's a fish gonna do, go swimming? Cut the grass? Go fishing? Take up banjo? Play basketball in the 'hood? Movies have to be the answer.
The question then is: what films would fish watch? That stupid thing with Don Knotts? Moby-Dick? 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea? Going After Nemo (or whatever that was called)? The Little Mermaid -- and could this be some sort of fishy skin flick? The Sea Wolf?
I think it would be Moby-Dick, for the same reason that Navajos watch Cheyenne Autumn and, of course, Moby gets to wipe out almost everyone on Peapod or whatever that whaling ship was called.
