I Am A Fish-Cake Maker
The English may love gardening and fishing, but they have never struck me as being close to nature. Their way of expression is 'the hollyhocks are awfully good' sort of thing, all done in very good taste. The savagery of nature is something they don't dwell upon.
Hell, if I'd jumped on all the dames I'm supposed to have jumped on, I'd have had no time to go fishing.
Old Fisherman never die, they just smell that way!
Don't worry, he said, that grandfatherly smile spreading across his face once more, 'I've been fishing for over forty years._ You've got plenty of time to catch up, maybe even pass what I've done._ You're a perspicacious piscatorial pursuer, and I'm sure you'll catch the big ones.' ~S. Bradley Stoner,Fishing and Other Misadventures
The way I pack is I look at how long I'll be gone and I pack day for day. If I'm going on a three-day fishing trip, I plot each day. I put most of that in a little bag. If I'm going from there to work on golf courses for a few days, I plot that trip.

Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
We use our land for hunting, fishing, hiking, and to create jobs. Our outdoor economy is a billion dollar economic engine for the state that creates jobs.
Devon holds a special place in my heart. As a child, I normally went on holiday to Bantham and have lots of happy memories from my time there. I used to catch sand eels in the early morning and go fishing for bass throughout the day. I remember a gull taking my bait.
One thing becomes clearer as one gets older and one's fishing experience increases, and that is the paramount importance of one's fishing companions. ~John Ashley-Cooper
