This freshly caught flying fish is placed next to the fishing-rod which is still seen and being bent. Next to this frightening creature is a traditional Japanese spinning toy (beigoma). After spinning and releasing this small but pointy toy, the top makes a humming noise and is quite entertaining. Bamboo leaves are added to this motif, which is the running theme throughout this stencil.
