Dream 174: You’ve Caught a Big One!
A 52-year-old man dreamt that he and his father were camping in a cave with a lake nearby.  As he left the cave a huge catfish that could somehow run came after him.  He thought the large fish was going to hurt him but it did not.  He was eventually able to restrain the catfish and put it on a stringer.
Dream 174 Interpretation
The dreamer was contemplating subconscious emotions. His father in the dream was his father introject which basically directs the dreamer’s actions. The cave is the subconscious (subterranean). Water is emotion.  Lakes are localized emotion. The catfish is a part of his instinctive energy. The catfish in particular is a scavenger that lives on waste material.
The dreamer was recently conflicted about being consumed with a hobby which was refurbishing thrown away electronic equipment.  He was worried that this interest was pursuing him and would hurt his chances of achieving other goals.  Refurbishing electronic equipment was metaphorically represented by a scavenger catfish (his instinctive energy was scavenging, refurbishing, thrown away electronic equipment).
The dream was reassuring him that he would not be hurt by this interest if he controlled himself. He needed to restrain (stringed) his interest, so that the hobby could be nourishing to him (eating the catfish).  He felt he needed to control the scavenging interest somewhat because he had bigger fish to fry.
