Can you answer this Riddle?

There are 2 fathers and 2 sons going on a fishing trip. Every person catches one fish. In total, there were only 3 fish. How is that so?


There are actually 3 persons in the riddle and not four.

One is a grandfather, other is the father and the third is the son.

Thus, the son, his father, and his grandfather go for fishing. Thus logically, there are 2 fathers and 2 sons.

Each person catches 1 fish each, so there are a total of 3 fishes only.
