Two people, one a fisherman and the other a fish market manager come on stage and hold a long cord between them.
The fish market man attempts to call the fisherman on the telephone to see if he has any fish today, the fisherman acts as if he can't hear him.
Volunteers are brought out of the audience and hold the cord between the fish market man and the fisherman one or two at a time with the market man attempting to call each time.
When several people are holding the line, the market man is able to communicate with the fisherman.
The fisherman says that he doesn't have any trout but he does have a lot of suckers hanging on a line showing the line the volunteers are holding up.
