Unfortunately for many parents, these toys can quickly lose their luster as children become used to them, or move on to shiner, newer objects.
In America the name bream is commonly given to the golden shiner minnow (Abramis chrysoleucus), to the pumpkin-seed sunfish (Eupomotis gibbosus), and to some kinds of porgy (Sparidae).
From a hilltop you can see a fish leap in almost any part; for not a pickerel or shiner picks an insect from this smooth surface but it manifestly disturbs the equilibrium of the whole lake.
Those village worms are quite too large; a shiner may make a meal off one without finding the skewer.
Ryland looked relieved that the shiner was the extent of his injuries.
