Maybe the fish had gone away too? Fish don't tend to like being asked questions, I've noticed. Maybe they thought the questions were for them and so they went away, and the fishermen went to look for them?
Ah ha yes! The exact order of departure. You have opened up a realm of speculation that I will never be able to ascertain with strict accuracy as to what happened. Here one feels the pain of being a chronicler and undoubtedly recording events with certain personal perceptions that cannot be avoided. Sigh. Though I did not see any of the little ones asking questions directly to the fish, that is not to say that did not happen. From my vantage point it looked like a cluster of little happy ones around the big fishermen. But I am certain that the fish had gone away by the end as Wee Small generally has that effect on all creatures in her vicinity.
