Just put up four more fishing quotes and sayings, numbers 1002 – 1005.
My pick from current crop:
“Angling is very different from other sport because of the role the fish has to play. Success or failure depends on the reaction and response of the fish. In most other sports, if the participant performs well, then the result will reflect this. In angling the performer may well give a perfect performance in all the skills required but all will be in vain if the fish does not respond. In angling, so much of the initiative lies with the fish: unless the angler can offer him something that brings a response, all is in vain”
