Fishing for piranhas

One afternoon our guide Edgy took a bunch of us out fishing for piranhas. We used bamboo sticks with a fishing line hanging off the end and baited the hooks with raw meat. After 5 minutes, we saw a rainstorm approaching quickly from across the river. We had just enough time to put our raincoats on when the rain hit us. It only lasted about 15 minutes or so, and we kept fishing in the meantime. Nearly everyone caught at least one piranha. I was one of two who didn't. But I fed a lot of piranha! They kept nibbling my bait off the hook. Every time I'd pull my hook out of the water, the bait was gone. I guess they're smarter than me. It was still tons of fun, though.
