The elwen are using the abundance of rain to fish in the pond. Since the rain has kept the pond full they are able to take their little bark boats out for rides and fish over the side with willow poles and hooks of fine wire they make in the smithy. Brokk is fond of fish stew. After catching trout, he gathers wild garlic and greens to add to the pot. He even sneaks into Mr. Tamoshay’s garden and digs young potatoes once in a while. Mr. Tamoshay thinks rabbits are digging the potatoes. We won’t tell him what is really happening. He wouldn’t believe it anyway.
