Russian term or phrase:В тот вечер он поймал пять крупных рыб.
This is just from a story by a Russian author living in the Russian Federation and speaking normal literary Russian.
You know, Michael, it's a pure "fish matter" that annoys me, for рыба in English is fish, ловить рыбу is to fish, одна рыба is fish, много рыб is fish ! How, do you think, one should go about this "fish problem" when translating from Russian into English ?
