Known as "Fisherman's Luck," this film records a fisherman's misfortune at the hands of a practical joker.

A country fisherman,wearing wide brimmed straw hat, is sitting on the end of a plank, holding a fishing pole. A practical joker sneaks up behind him and removes a heavy stone holding down the other end of the plank, causing the fisherman to fall into the stream. A man arrives in a horse drawn wagon. He joins the practical joker in laughing at the fisherman's dilemma. Eventually, the practical joker jumps into the stream as well.
