    هناك خط رفيع بين الصيد والوقوف على الشاطئ مثل أحمق.

    hay una línea muy fina entre pescar y quedarse en la orilla como un idiota.

    il y a une ligne de démarcation entre la pêche et le fait de rester sur le rivage comme un idiot.

    वहाँ मछली पकड़ने और बस एक बेवकूफ की तरह किनारे पर खड़ा के बीच एक अच्छी लाइन है।

    ಮೀನುಗಾರಿಕೆ ಮತ್ತು ಈಡಿಯಟ್‌ನಂತೆ ದಡದಲ್ಲಿ ನಿಲ್ಲುವ ನಡುವೆ ಉತ್ತಮವಾದ ರೇಖೆಯಿದೆ.

    есть тонкая грань между рыбалкой и просто стоять на берегу, как идиот.
