Storyline

John, in order to get off for a day's fishing, tells his boss he is sick. Being excused from work he hurries home, secures his rod and basket, says good-bye to his wife and rushes off for a day's sport. After a long and tiresome wait John lands a fish. While he is baiting his hook a sea-gull swoops down and secures John's catch. This so rattles our hero that in the excitement of the moment while throwing the line, the hook catches in the dress of a very pretty girl who is fishing nearby. Through the misunderstanding that arises, John gets into difficulties that result in his being driven from the wharf and into the sea. The story he tells his wife is the usual fish story but it must be seen on the screen to be appreciated. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
