Catching the Luckfish

Author Comments

When in contact with direct sunlight, a luckfish sheds its golden scales, leaving it permanently a plain bluish colour. It is said that to glimpse a golden luckfish will grant you plentiful catch for the rest of the season. The discarded gold scales are sold as charms at markets.

Subsequently, it bodes ill fortune if you were to kill or eat the luckfish.

Some richer folk have managed to acquire luckfish in aquariums, with their gold scales intact.

Thanks!


Woah Awesome.In Chinese culture gold is for good fortune & luck. If you put it tht way,it's still awesome


Brakkenimation responds:

Ha, yeah! Nice connection :D


I LOVE your backstory, and that you shared it with us. This reminds me of Stephen King & Peter Straub's Territories universe. The air is rich, the live more vital. Beautiful.


Brakkenimation responds:

Thanks very much, glad you appreciate the backstory :)
I haven't heard of Territories before!
