Quote of the Day
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
Henry David Thoreau
Fishing is much more than fish. It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers.

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.
Thank you, dear God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough. Thank you for the rain. And for the chance to wake up in three hours and go fishing: I thank you for that now, because I won't feel so thankful then.
The English may love gardening and fishing, but they have never struck me as being close to nature. Their way of expression is 'the hollyhocks are awfully good' sort of thing, all done in very good taste. The savagery of nature is something they don't dwell upon.

I wonder whether I would realize that while African nations have a failure of leadership, they also have dynamic people with agency and voices.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Fishing provides that connection with the whole living world. It gives you the opportunity of being totally immersed, turning back into yourself in a good way. A form of meditation, some form of communion with levels of yourself that are deeper than the ordinary self.
What people don't understand is this is something that we only have in America. There is no other country in the world where the ordinary citizen can go out and enjoy hunting and fishing. There's no other nation in the world where that happens. And it's very much a part of our heritage.
The fun of fishing is catching 'em, not killing 'em.
There are always new places to go fishing. For any fisherman, there's always a new place, always a new horizon.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.

Hunting, fishing, drawing, and music occupied my every moment. Cares I knew not, and cared naught about them.
John James Audubon

Martin Luther King, Jr.
