5 More Fishing Quotes and Sayings – Nov 22, 2009

Have just up-loaded 5 more quotes and sayings, numbers 896 – 990. Three of them, on the subject of ‘catch and release’ may stir up some flak from some quarters.

My pick:

“Catch and release is not merely an art of fly-fishing, not necessarily learned or suitable for some fishermen, but it is one that should be used only on waters where it makes real sense and not simply imagined sense. Where and when it is practiced, it should always be for the sake of the trout, not for the sake of the angler. If any benefits accrue from its employment, then these are due to the fish alone. If not it become an act of selfishness.”
