The Fisherman and his Wife is a children's story/fairy tale story that first appeared in Gone Fishing!.
Once Upon a Time, there was a fisherman who'd fished all day and hadn't caught anything. Suddenly, he felt a tug on the line. He reeled up a shiny fish. It was no ordinary fish, no no! The fish wanted to be let go. He was really an enchanted prince! The fisherman was surprised that the fish could talk, so he must be a prince. So the fisherman let the fish go.
The Fisherman then went home to a tiny old run down shack where he lived with his wife. His wife then wondered if he caught anything. The Fisherman told his wife he did catch something. It was an enchanted prince but he let him go. His wife was surprised that he hadn't wished for anything. The fisherman wouldn't know what to wish for since they had what they needed. His wife told him to go back to the fish and wish for a nicer home to live in with a pretty garden.
The Fisherman went back to the sea and called out to the fish. The fish popped up and the fisherman told the fish what his wife wanted. He told him to go home since her wish has been granted. Sure enough, the fisherman went home to a nice house with a pretty garden all around. But soon, the wife wanted even more. She wanted to live in a big castle with a big tall tower. The fisherman was pleased with what he had, but he went anyways.
The Fisherman called back unto the fish. The fish popped up and the fisherman told the fish what his wife has wished for. Soon, the wish was granted. The fisherman came home to a big castle with tall tall towers. The wife still wasn't happy. She told the fisherman that he wanted all the land around the castle far as she could see. The Fisherman was sad. He knew they have more then they need.
The Fisherman went back to the sea and called unto the fish. The fish was very angry. The fisherman told the fish what his wife has asked for now. The fish was angry. He told the fisherman to not ask for more for what they already have.
The Fisherman came back home. The big castle with tall tall towers were all gone. Everything they wished for were gone. The fisherman's wife, sat in that tiny old run down shack that they had shared for many years and that is where they live till this very day. The End.
Once Upon a Time, a fisherman and his wife lived in a little shack beside the sea. The fisherman was going fishing. If he didn't catch a fish, there wouldn't be anything for dinner. The fisherman tried very hard, but he didn't catch a single fish all day! Finally, he caught one! The Fisherman soon found out that this was no ordinary fish. The fish begged him to let her go. She told him that she was a magic fish. If he let her go, she'll grant him a wish. So The Fisherman let her go. The Fisherman didn't wish for anything since he already had what he needed.
The fisherman was happy that he let the fish go free. But when he went home and told his wife what happened.... she was not so happy. His wife was shocked that he didn't wish for anything! She says she needed some stuff. She wasn't happy in the little shack. She told the fisherman to go back and tell her that she wanted a nice house with a nice garden. So.. The Fisherman went back to the sea and called unto the fish. The fisherman told the fish what his wife had wanted. The fish said that she has her wish then disappeared into the sea.
The Fisherman went home to find a nice house with a garden. It wasn't exactly what the wife wanted. She told The Fisherman to go back and tell the magic fish that she wants a bigger house and a fancy garden. So, The Fisherman went back to the sea and called unto the fish. The fisherman then told the fish what his wife wants now. The fish said that she now has her wish, then disappeared back into the sea.
The fisherman went home to find a bigger house with a fancy garden. The wife still wasn't pleased. She really wanted a castle with tall towers so she can be a queen. She told The Fisherman to go and tell the magic fish to give her everything she deserves. So.. The Fisherman went back to the sea and called unto the fish again. The fish came up and guessed that the wife still wasn't happy. The fisherman told the fish that his wife wanted everything she deserves. The fish then granted it and disappeared into the sea.
When The Fisherman returned home, The big house and the big fancy garden were gone! The Fisherman told his wife that she gave her everything you deserve. He told her to just be happy with what they have. In time, The Fisherman's Wife learned that she didn't need a big house to be happy. So The Fisherman and his wife lived happily ever after. The End.
