a big fish in a small pond


If someone is described as a big fish in a small pond, it means that they have an important position, but only within a small group or organization. The saying suggests that if they were in a bigger group, they would be considered much less important.

Example

“How is Janet enjoying secondary school?”

“Well, she likes it now, but it’s so different from her primary. It took her a while to get used to the change from being a big fish in a small pond to being a humble first year.”

How do you say it in Russian?

Первый парень на деревне
