Answer:  REEL TREAT

(A real piscine pun!  I’m pretty sure we’ve had this pun before, but sometimes they’re worth reviving.  Like today’s Jumble!  The word “reel” has a number of meanings.  Besides a cylinder for winding fishing line, or film, etc., it can be a kind of Irish or Scottish dance, and it can also mean to stagger and falter.  Really!

All of today’s clue words are already members of the ralis95 clue word database.  Yet, all of their jumbles have come up as new!  But I was able to se them all immediately.  The answer letter layout was a nifty nine letter jumble.  There was a cryptic angle to it.  But of course, the quotation marks kind of gave the final answer away.

Cute cartoon of Gramps and Granddaughter enjoying a day of fishing.  That fish definitely looks annoyed.  I’ve never seen a fish with eyebrows before though!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Bruce Lee (Martial Artist and Actor) - On This Day

A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.”   —   Bruce Lee

(Like . . . how not to ask foolish questions?  Or, that there sure are a lot of fools out there?  Yes, and just that many people think . . . differently.  The “foolish” question might persuade you into looking at something from an unconventional perspective.  And of course, a fool is much more than ignorant.  Even the wisest answer will not benefit them.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
