Each Uisge | A Book of Creatures
I was a boy going to school. We got a holiday that day. Well, we were all watching carefully when the net got stuck, and all the gillies got the fear of death on them.
So they just dropped the net, and ran back from the loch. I mind the day fine.

A whilie after they commenced again; and after a whilie the net came away on a sudden. Well, then, they pulled it in like, afraid all the time what would be in the net.
