|Description||valuable, hard-to-catch fish|
The coy fish (Piscis fugax) is a type of fish that is found in the lakes, ponds, and streams of Godville. It is known for being particularly challenging for fishermen to catch. It takes a great deal of patience and time to coax a coy fish towards the bait. As soon as the fisherman thinks that he has gotten the coy fish onto the hook, the fish will shyly back away, and the luring process must begin anew. Strangely enough, the difficulty in catching a coy fish seems to make fishermen all the more determined to catch one. It has been reported, however, that, once caught, many coy fish turn out to not be so special after all,.
