Story Summary

A young fisherman frees a stork from netting and in return the stork has him cast his net, whereupon he catches a fish whose scales are of gold and silver. The young lad takes the fish to the King asking for his daughter's hand in exchange. The Princess agrees to marry the fisherman but only if he can bring her the key to the Wish-house. She thinks it an impossible task not realizing the fisher lad still has the stork to aid him.
