Fishing Lines

"The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope." - John Buchan

"Many men go fishing their entire lives without knowing it is not fish they are after." - Henry David Thoreau

"There he stands, draped in more equipment than a telephone lineman, trying to outwit an organism with a brain no bigger than a breadcrumb, and getting licked in the process." - Paul O'Neil, 1965

"Anglers...exaggerate grossly and make gentle and inoffensive creatures sound like wounded buffalo and man-eating tigers." - Roderick Haig-Brown

"Fly fishing is like sex, everyone thinks there is more than there is and that everyone is getting more than their share." - Henry Kanemoto 

"The true fisherman approaches the first day of fishing season with all the sense of wonder and awe of a child approaching Christmas." - Robert Traver

"Only those become weary of angling that bring nothing to it but the idea of catching fish." - Rafael Sabatini

"Angling is tightly woven in a fabric of moral, social, and philosophical threads which are not easily rent by the violent climate of our times." - A.J. McClane
