In this context, I thought about the fish referring to the critics in Hemingway's writing career.

"prove us wrong" made be think about how a lot of people thought Hemingway no longer had it in him. Hemingway might have thought that if he were to write a 'masterpiece' there would be always that one person to say otherwise.
