A linguistic puzzle

Yesterday I happened upon a puzzle in the Grauniad which to my delight turned out to be a linguistic puzzle:


You are given seven pictures of varying amount of fish that describe the catch made by the speaker of the associated seven sentences (one of which is a lie to make it more difficult). Your task is it to match the pictures to the sentences without given a translation. It took me a bit but I enjoyed it a lot! Give it a try 🙂
