A Big Fish In A Small Pond


The meaning of this English phrase is different than it may sound. The phrase is actually a way of saying that someone is content to have a lot of influence in a relatively small group of people or place.

For Example:

This phrase can be used to describe someone who is a mayor of a small town that is relatively unimportant in the world. “The mayor of that town is a big fish in a small pond.”
