“Now the virtue of trout fishing is that it, of all pursuits, rewards the dreamer with the realization of his dream.  The trout are more beautiful than he remembered them as being, and the day, the scene and the occupation are the harmony. That is why men go trout fishing. “ Ben Hur Lapman

“It is the glory of the art of angling that its disciples never grow old. The muscles may relax and the beloved rod become a burden, but the fire of enthusiasm kindled in youth is never extinguished”  George Dawson

“You will search far to find a fisherman who’ll admit that a taste for fishing, like a taste for liquor, must be governed lest it come to possess its possessor.” Sparse Grey Hackle
