Fishing Quotes:

Fishing is such great fun, I have often felt, that it really ought to be done in bed.  
John Voelker 1974

Ice fishing isn't about catching fish;
It's about endurance, patience.... and hope.

You must remember that there's plenty of salt in the sea to take with the tales your fellow fishermen tell.  John Hersey 1987

A trout is a moment of beauty known only to those who seek it.

I get all the truth I need in the newspaper every morning, and every chance I get I go fishing, or swap stories with fishermen to get the taste of it out of my mouth.   Ed Zern 1977

Everyone ought to believe in something;
I believe I'll go fishing.

Trout thrive best in water with a high mineral content, while this is the very sort of water that is worst for making Tennessee whiskey. This is why one never finds a trout in a fifth of Jack Daniel's. Or vice versa.   Milford Stanley Poltroon 1977

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

There were lots of people who committed crimes during the year who would not have done so if they had been fishing, and I assure you that the increase in crime is due to a lack of those qualities of mind and character, which impregnate the soul of every fisherman except those who get no bites.  Herbert Hoover 1930  

The two best times to fish is when it's rainin and when it ain't.

An old legend holds that since the Bible says, “God created all the great sea monsters” on the fourth day (Genesis 1:21), Thursday is the best day to watch for them to appear.

If fishing is interfering with your business, give up your business.

All Americans believe that they are born fishermen. For a man to admit to a distaste for fishing would be like denouncing mother-love and hating moonlight.  John Steinbeck 1954

Many men go fishing all their lives and do not realize
that it is not fishing they are after.

If a little madness be a necessary requisite to obtain the ultimate in the pleasure
of angling -- then, O Lord, give me insanity!
John Alden Knight 1936

Some go to church and think about fishing;
others go fishing and think about God.

If the old boy [Izaak Walton] occasionally stretched the truth, it strikes me that it makes him an even more appropriate father figure for a cult whose members are often given to hyperbole.  Robert Diendorfer 1977

At the end of a slow day, a fisherman's thoughts turn to home....
and the great excuse needed to explain the lack of fish.

And when he struck his first cod, and felt the fish take the hook, a kind of big slow smile went over his features, and he said, “Gentlemen, this is solid comfort.”   
Stephen Vincent Benet 1932

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.

If you ever wondered why fishing is probably the most popular sport in this country, watch that boy beside the brook and you will learn. If you are really perceptive you will. For he already knows that fishing is only one part fish.  Hal Borland 1954

Fact is, most fish-less days are the ones when
for one reason or another,
you probably shouldn't have gone fishing in the first place.

Now I am . . . like anyone with a strong preference for the fly rod, totally indifferent to how large a fish I catch by comparison with other fishermen. So when a fifteen-year-old called Fred, fishing deep in midsummer with a hideous plastic worm, caught a four and a half pounder . . . I naturally felt no resentment beyond wanting to break the kid's thumbs.
Vance Bourjaily 1981

If you can't catch fish...At least you can dress well.

With nary one fish to show for his day with rod and reel, an amateur fisherman stopped at a market on his way home and thoughtfully bought a dozen trout. He then ordered the fish man to throw them to him one at a time. “When I tell my wife,” he explained to the mystified fish man, “that I catch fish -- I catch them!”  Bennett Cerf 1965

Nothing makes a fish bigger, except for "almost" being caught.

It is just possible that nice guys don't catch the most fish. But they find far more pleasure in those they do get. Roderick Haig-Brown 1960

I fish; therefore I lie.   

Whenever I find myself growing green about the mouth; whenever it is a damp drizzly November in my soul; and especially whenever it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from methodically knocking peoples hats off -- then, I account it high time to get to sea. There is nothing surprising in this. If they but know it, almost all men in their degree cherish very nearly the same feelings towards the ocean with me.  Herman Melville, Moby Dick

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit
 of what is elusive but attainable;
 a perpetual series of occasions for hope.

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.

Somebody just back of you while you are fishing is as bad as someone
 looking over your shoulder while you write a letter to your girl.

Ours is the grandest sport. It is an intriguing battle
 of wits between an angler and a trout;
and in addition to appreciating the tradition and grace of the game,
 we play in the magnificent out-of-doors.

Rivers and the inhabitants of the watery elements are made for wise men
 to contemplate and for fools to pass by without consideration.

There is no more graceful and healthful accomplishment for a lady than fly-fishing, and there is no reason why a lady should not in every respect, 
rival a gentleman in the gentle art.

It is only the inexperienced and thoughtless who find
 pleasure in killing fish for the mere sake of killing them.
 No sportsman does this.

Bass fisherman watch Monday Night Football, drink beer,
drive pickup trucks, and prefer noisy women....
Trout fisherman watch MacNeil-Lehrer, drink white wine,
 drive foreign cars, and hardly think about women....
This last characteristic may have something to do with the fact
 that trout fisherman spend most of the time up to their 
thighs in ice-cold water.

We live the way we fish; and fish the way we live.

God never did make a more calm, quiet, innocent recreation than angling.

If you want to be happy for a moment get drunk,
 If you want to be happy for 3 days get married,
 If you want to be happy for a week kill your pig and eat it,
 If you want to be happy for life learn to fish.

Fishing is not a matter of life or death; its much more important than that.

If you caught fish every time, it wouldn't be called fishin...
it would be called catchin.

If you can't fish with the one you love; fish with the one you're with.

Late to bed, early to rise; fish all day, make up lies.

Give a man a fish and he will have dinner;
 teach a man to fish and he will be late for dinner.  

If you cast it; they will come.
