"Patience is the key element to catching fish. This is seen in the patient and cautious manners displayed by the ever-present heron. These herons are known to wait, unmoving, until the time of a precise snatch, which rarely fails on the first attempt. Fishermen will wait until they see birds over the sea before they head out on their fishing trips. The herons are a sign of a plentiful sea. The symbol in the moon represents a traditional sign of good fortune for a fishing trip. Even today, you can see many fishermen on the coasts wearing this symbol."
