Fishing Quotes

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.  ~Henry David Thoreau

"The best time to go fishing is when you can get away". - Robert Traver

"The only thing bad about winning the pennant is that you have to manage the All-Star Game the next year. I'd rather go fishing for three years." - Whitey Herzog

Calling fishing a hobby is like calling brain surgery a job.  ~Paul Schullery

"All Americans believe that they are born fishermen. For a man to admit a distaste for fishing would be like denouncing mother-love or hating moonlight." -  John Steinbeck

All fishermen are liars; it's an occupational disease with them like housemaid's knee or editor's ulcers.  ~Beatrice Cook, Till Fish Do Us Part, 1949

My biggest worry is that my wife (when I'm dead) will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it.  ~Koos Brandt

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.  ~Doug Larson

May the holes in your net be no larger than the fish in it.  ~Irish Blessing

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

There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.  ~Steven Wright

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

Fishing is a... discipline in the equality of men - for all men are equal before fish.  ~Herbert Hoover

Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land.  It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn.  ~Chuck Clark

Our tradition is that of the first man who sneaked away to the creek when the tribe did not really need fish.  ~Roderick Haig-Brown, about modern fishing, A River Never Sleeps, 1946

"Fishing is a delusion entirely surrounded by liars in old clothes." - Don Marquis

"These brook trout will strike any fly you present, provided you don't get close enough to present it."  - Dick Blalock

An angler is a man who spends rainy days sitting around on the muddy banks of rivers doing nothing because his wife won't let him do it at home.  ~Author Unknown

"For the supreme test of a fisherman is not how many fish he has caught, not even how he has caught them, but what he has caught when he has caught no fish." - John H. Bradley

Give a man a fish, and you'll feed him for a day; give him a religion, and he'll starve to death while praying for a fish.  ~Author Unknown

"Fishing with shrimp is like sleeping with your sister. It was ok when you were a kid!" ~Captain Pete Greenan
