What are more delightful than one's emotions when approaching a trout stream for the initial cast? ~ Nash Buckingham
Trout Fishing quotes by Nash Buckingham
There is a lot of amiable fantasy written about trout fishing, but the truth is that few men know much if anything about the habits of trout and little more about the manner of taking them. ~ John D. Voelker
Trout Fishing quotes by John D. Voelker
Game fish are too valuable to be caught only once. ~ Lee Wulff
Trout Fishing quotes by Lee Wulff
If fishing is a religion, fly fishing is high church. ~ Tom Brokaw
Trout Fishing quotes by Tom Brokaw
Never leave fish to find fish. ~ Moses
Trout Fishing quotes by Moses
'Mustanging' was like trout fishing. It is always the big ones that get away. When you did get a bunch of them into a corral, you found they did not look half so large and handsome as when they were first sighted on the prairie. ~ Will C. Barnes
Trout Fishing quotes by Will C. Barnes
Write. Remember, people may keep you (or me) from being a published author but no one can stop you from being a writer. All you have to do is write. And keep writing. While you're working at a career, while you're raising children, while you're trout fishing
keep writing! No one can stop you but you. ~ Katherine Neville
Trout Fishing quotes by Katherine Neville
The finest gift you can give to any fisherman is to put a good fish back, and who knows if the fish that you caught isn't someone else's gift to you? ~ Lee Wulff
Trout Fishing quotes by Lee Wulff
Such a nice day - out all day up in the Carter Notch direction, trout-fishing, with the long drive there and the long drive home again in time for supper. It was a lovely brook and I caught seven good trout and one small one - which eight trout-persons you should have for your breakfast if only you were near enough. It was not alone the fishing, but the delightful loneliness and being out of doors. ~ Sarah Orne Jewett
Trout Fishing quotes by Sarah Orne Jewett
Once, while cleaning the trout before I went home in the almost night, I had a vision of going over to the poor graveyard and gathering up grass and fruit jars and tin cans and markers and wilted flowers and bugs and weeds and clods and going home and putting a hook in the vise and tying a fly with all that stuff and then going outside and casting it up into the sky, watching it float over clouds and then into the evening star.
(from Trout Fishing on the Bevel, page 21) ~ Richard Brautigan
Trout Fishing quotes by Richard Brautigan
A trout is a moment of beauty known only to those who seek it. ~ Arnold Gingrich
Trout Fishing quotes by Arnold Gingrich
The old drunk told me about trout fishing. When he could talk, he had a way of describing trout as if they were a precious and intelligent metal. ~ Richard Brautigan
Trout Fishing quotes by Richard Brautigan
There was a code, and though it was mostly unspoken, I absorbed it early on. You always put all the trout back in the water alive except for a few to eat. You didn't count your trout or call attention to their size or weight. You took time to watch and enjoy seeing your partners catch trout. ~ Howard Frank Mosher
Trout Fishing quotes by Howard Frank Mosher
Successful trout fishing isn't a matter of brute force or even persistence, but something more like infiltration. ~ John Gierach
Trout Fishing quotes by John Gierach
Trout fishing. One must be a stickler for proper form. Use nothing but #4 blasting caps, or a hand grenade, if handy, or at a pool well-lined with stone, one blast from a .44 magnum will bring a few stunned brookies quietly to the surface. ~ Edward Abbey
Trout Fishing quotes by Edward Abbey
When the Basque whalers applied to cod the salting techniques they were using on whale, they discovered a particularly good marriage because the cod is virtually without fat, and so if salted and dried well, would rarely spoil. It would outlast whale, which is red meat, and it would outlast herring, a fatty fish that became a popular salted item of the northern countries in the Middle Ages. ~ Mark Kurlansky
Trout Fishing quotes by Mark Kurlansky
Well, the gold fish in the bowl lay upside down bloating
Full in the sky and the plains were bleached white with skeletons
Various species grouped together according
To their past beliefs
The only way they ever all got together was
Not in love but shameful grief ~ Don Van Vliet
Trout Fishing quotes by Don Van Vliet
A few minutes ago, I felt as if I was back in Paris,
sitting in a park.
It is funny how our mind sometimes wanders
back to times past.

When each of my parents was dying,
floating in a sea of pain medication,
their minds drifted back to their early twenties
when they were newly in love.
They both talked as if they were lost,
and they had to find each other.

In one corner of my house,
I display some things that my parents cherished:
my mother's china
and my father's fishing gear.
I don't know if there is an afterlife,
but if their ghosts visit me someday,
then their cherished things will be waiting for them.
I also display photographs of my late parents,
not when they were old,
but when they were a newlywed couple,
young, happy, smiling
and full of hope
and love. ~ Jeffrey A. White
Trout Fishing quotes by Jeffrey A. White
Never open a can of worms unless you plan to go fishing. ~ John C. Maxwell
Trout Fishing quotes by John C. Maxwell
If you'd asked me at 30 where I'd be during the Masters when I was 46, I'd have pictured myself on a boat fishing, smoking a cigar, drinking a mint julep and watching it on television. ~ Jack Nicklaus
Trout Fishing quotes by Jack Nicklaus
I was just different. When the other kids gravitated to football or basketball, I went fishing and skating. I was into trapping animals, pheasants and squirrels. Not only was I trapper, I was a taxidermist. ~ Gene Pitney
Trout Fishing quotes by Gene Pitney
Fishing has been styled 'a contemplative man's recreation,' ... and science is only a more contemplative man's recreation. ~ Henry David Thoreau
Trout Fishing quotes by Henry David Thoreau
Fish die belly upward, and rise to the surface. It's their way of falling. ~ Andre Gide
Trout Fishing quotes by Andre Gide
I remember the good evenings I have fished, even the ones that realised material hopes not by the fish that came to the fly, but by the colour and movement of the water and sky, by the sounds and scents and gentle stirrings that were all about me. ~ Roderick Haig-Brown
Trout Fishing quotes by Roderick Haig-Brown
It's an odd fact of life that whichever side of the stream you're on, two-thirds of the best water is out of reach on the other side. ~ John Gierach
Trout Fishing quotes by John Gierach
I wondered what it does to each of us to spend the majority of our waking hours doings things we'd rather not do, wishing we were outside or simply elsewhere, wishing we were reading, thinking, making love, fishing, sleeping, or simply having time to figure out who the hell we are and what the hell we're doing. ~ Derrick Jensen
Trout Fishing quotes by Derrick Jensen
Government cannot close its eyes to the pollution of waters, to the erosion of soil, to the slashing of forests any more than it can close its eyes to the need for slum clearance and schools. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
Trout Fishing quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
Lots of people committed crimes during the year who would not have done so if they had been fishing. The increase of crime is among those deprived of the regenerations that impregnate the mind and character of the fisherman. ~ Herbert Hoover
Trout Fishing quotes by Herbert Hoover
How easy it is to get tangled up in your own fishing net. ~ Martha Hall Kelly
Trout Fishing quotes by Martha Hall Kelly
Of course, an exhausting day at sail lines and nets left little energy to expend on running or laughing. Perhaps that was why her parents couldn't appreciate her music-it wouldn't appear to be hard work to them. Menolly shook her hands, letting them flap from her wrists. They ached and trembled from the constricted movements and tension of an hour of intensive playing. No, her parents would never understand that playing musical instruments could be as hard work as sailing or fishing. ~ Anne McCaffrey
Trout Fishing quotes by Anne McCaffrey
It's like fishing
you got to get that first one in the boat. Once you get that first one, the skunk is off the boat and everything's cool from then on. You've got to get that first one. Once he gets the first one, I know he'll be fine. ~ Dusty Baker
Trout Fishing quotes by Dusty Baker
We always had the greatest arguments over sex and fishing. ~ Douglas Adams
Trout Fishing quotes by Douglas Adams
He had a point. The planet was being destroyed by manufacturing processes, and what was being manufactured was lousy, by and large.
Then Trout made a good point, too. 'Well,' he said, 'I used to be a conservationist. I used to weep and wail about people shooting bald eagles with automatic shotguns from helicopters and all that, but I gave it up. There's a river in Cleveland which is so polluted that it catches fire about once a year. That used to make me sick, but I laugh about it now. When some tanker accidentally dumps its load in the ocean, and kills millions of birds and billions of fish, I say, 'More power to Standard Oil,' or whoever it was that dumped it.' Trout raised his arms in celebration. 'Up your ass with Mobil gas,' he said. ~ Kurt Vonnegut
Trout Fishing quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
At the end of the day, no amount of investing, no amount of clean electrons, no amount of energy efficiency will save the natural world if we are not paying attention to it - if we are not paying attention to all the things that nature give us for free: clean air, clean water, breathtaking vistas, mountains for skiing, rivers for fishing, oceans for sailing, sunsets for poets, and landscapes for painters. What good is it to have wind-powered lights to brighten the night if you can't see anything green during the day? Just because we can't sell shares in nature doesn't mean it has no value. ~ Thomas L. Friedman
Trout Fishing quotes by Thomas L. Friedman
NATO isn't going to be concerned about fishing. ~ Paul Watson
Trout Fishing quotes by Paul Watson
Russ decided the best defense was a good offense. "I'm Russell Van Alstyne, Millers Kill chrief of police." He held out his hand. She shook firm, like a guy.
"Clare Fergusson," she said. "I'm the new priest at Saint Alban's. That's the Episcopal Church. At the corner of Elm and Church." there was a faint testiness in her voice. Russ relaxed a fraction. A woman priest. If that didn't beat all.
"I know which it is. There are only four churches in town." He saw the fog creeping along the edges of his glasses again and snatched them off, fishing for a tissue in his pocket. "Can you tell me what happened, um ... " What was he supposed to call her? "Mother?"
"I go by Reverend, Chief. Ms. is fine, too."
"Oh. Sorry. I never met a woman priest before."
"We're just like the men priests, except we're willing to pull over and ask directions. ~ Julia Spencer-Fleming
Trout Fishing quotes by Julia Spencer-Fleming
I don't think acting should be all-encompassing. So, when I'm not shooting, I'll go down to Mexico on a spear-fishing trip for a couple of weeks, or I'll go to the Coral Sea, or I'll go to Panama, or wherever. ~ Tanc Sade
Trout Fishing quotes by Tanc Sade
Every last cast is actually a first cast. The first cast and first chance to catch the next fish. The next time you anguish about whether to make that last cast, forget it - the anguish that is - and cast away. The next fish caught on a last cast will not be the first. ~ Tony Bishop
Trout Fishing quotes by Tony Bishop
One of the problems with the first date is that you know very little about a person, so you overweight those few things that you do know,' the anthropologist and dating guru Helen Fisher told me. 'And suddenly you see they've got brown shoes, and you don't like brown shoes, so they're out. Or they don't like your haircut, so they're out. But if you were to get to know each other more, those particular characteristics might begin to recede in importance, as you also found that they had a great sense of humor or they'd love to go fishing in the Caribbean with you. ~ Aziz Ansari
Trout Fishing quotes by Aziz Ansari
When I go fishing I like to know that there's nobody within five miles of me. ~ Norman MacCaig
Trout Fishing quotes by Norman MacCaig
If you have an approach that makes money, then money management can make the difference between success and failure ... I try to be conservative in my risk management. I want to make sure I'll be around to play tomorrow. Risk control is essential. ~ Monroe Trout
Trout Fishing quotes by Monroe Trout
The truth is, fish have very little sex life. If you have ever tried to make love under water, you will know why. ~ Ed Zern
Trout Fishing quotes by Ed Zern
Online social networking allows a small fish in a small pond to become bigger than a big fish in a big pond - without the support or consent of the big fish. Your goal is to be the type of fish the consumer is fishing for. I'm in the mood for tilapia. ~ Jarod Kintz
Trout Fishing quotes by Jarod Kintz
This has just came in from high command. There will be no loitering on the beachhead. Anyone found skinny dipping or fishing with grenades will be put on a charge. Two marines have already been disciplined for this offence.' A few men laughed and he smiled. 'Also there will be no fraternisation with the local female populace. This will not be tolerated. High command believe they may well carry some exotic disease our doctors may not be able to treat.' That brought a little more laughter. 'Again two marines have already been disciplined,' the rest of his sentence was drowned out by the laughter. He waited until it died down again. 'In their defence the marines stated that the females plied them with a local beverage made from coconuts. As there doesn't seem to be any coconut trees in space the high command disbelieved their story. So don't try it, you won't get away with it. ~ J.W. Murison
Trout Fishing quotes by J.W. Murison
The chief difference between big-game fishing and weightlifting is that weightlifters never clutter up their library walls with stuffed barbells ~ Ed Zern
Trout Fishing quotes by Ed Zern
