And still they keep coming, now 1070, latest numbers 1065 1070:

– Polynesian saying  (1065)

"The river", corrected the Rat, "It’s my world…What it hasn’t got is not worth having…"

"Fishing" is what happens while you are waiting to catch fish.

– Unknown author   (1067)

“The outdoors, the beautiful environment, both in fresh and salt water. And the thing that concerns me is the amount of kids that stand on street corners, or go into pinball parlours, and call it recreation.”

– Rex Hunt       (1068)

Just change ‘pinball parlours’ to computer games to bring quote up-to-date, and not be surprised how some things do not change.

“Me, I’m spiritually retarded, I need to be knee deep in water with a fly rod in my hands, that’s about as close to God as I get.”

– Steve Earle   (1069)

“We fish for pleasure; I for mine, you for yours.”

– James Leisenring, from his notebooks   (1070)

Believed to be a comment that there is no ‘right’ way to fish, just fish in the way that gives most pleasure.
