Stranger
And of swimming creatures we see that one tribe is winged and the other is in the water?

Theaetetus
Of course.

Stranger
And the hunting of winged creatures is called, as a whole, fowling.

Theaetetus
It is.

Stranger
And the hunting of water creatures goes by the general name of fishing.

Theaetetus
Yes.

Stranger
And might I not divide this kind of hunting into two principal divisions?

Theaetetus
What divisions?

Stranger
The one carries on the hunt by means of enclosures merely, the other by a blow.

Theaetetus
What do you mean, and how do you distinguish the two?

Stranger
As regards the first, because whatever surrounds anything and encloses it
