|Kero & The Catfish has its roots in ancient Lyrian folklore. It tells the tale of a man, Kero, whose highest goal in life was to outdo the other sailors of his village. Kero brought in several pounds of fish in each day, fed his family and ran his market stall, but it was never enough. Filled with a lust for greed, Kero set out on a fishing trip deep into the Strait of Dunai. While there, he encountered a large fish, a Catfish, larger than any he had ever seen. He threw out his nets and readied his spears, but all attempts to strike the leviathan fish were in vain.|
One day on the water, when all was still, the Catfish brought its head from under the waves, and spoke. "Foolish man, give up now and return to your family! Childish it is to woe over a fish, surely this chase will be the end of your days!" It returned to the water, only having angered the fisherman more.
Day after day Kero struggled to kill the giant fish, his small boat being overturned by the monster several times. But, not a single rod of Kero's caught any fish, and he began to go hungry. Haughty still, but starving, Kero's last effort to catch the fish was all in vain. When he had readied his spear, and tightened the nest, the Catfish breached into the air, landing upon the deck of Kero's ship. Far too large for the small watercraft, it collapsed, and down went Kero, the fish, and all memory of the fisherman.
