- "Would you look at that? A fish stabbed itself with this here sword. I'll sell it to the navy! How's that for luck?"
- ―The fisherman on the sword of Jack Sparrow
This man resided in Saint Martin in the early 1750s and was a notable fisherman. In 1751, after the notorious pirate captain Jack Sparrow dropped his cutlass into the sea, the sword ended up stabbing a fish caught in the fisherman's net. The fisherman did not realize this until the following night when he walked into the Grimes Pub and presented his catch as a trade. He noticed the sword, and declared that he would sell it to the Navy. However, Jack Sparrow himself, who happened to be next to him, shouted and grabbed the sword, but ended up flinging it into a wanted poster of himself, with the sword landing in between the eyes of his face on the poster. The fisherman's further fate is unknown.
Behind the scenes
- Lenny Firth was credited with playing "Fisherman" in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. However, the character's only clear appearance is in the film's novelization, and even that appearance contradicts the film's events. The scene was adapted from Jeff Nathanson's 2013 early draft of the Dead Men Tell No Tales script where it was set in King George Pub in Port Royal.
