FISHING

[ Also see Amusements Bait Fish Fishermen Flyfishing Sport Trout ]

Thus use your frog: . . . put your hook, I mean the arming wire, through his mouth, and out at his gills, and then with a fine needle and silk sow the upper part of his leg with only one stitch to the arming wire of your hook, or tie the frog's leg above the upper joint to the armed wire; and in so doing use him as though you loved him.
      - Izaak Walton, The Compleat Angler
         (pt. I, ch. VIII)

I love any discourse of rivers, and fish and fishing.
      - Izaak Walton, The Compleat Angler
         (pt. I, ch. XVIII)

Let the blessing of St. Peter's Master be . . . upon all that are lovers of virtue; and dare trust in His providence; and be quiet; and go a-Angling.
      - Izaak Walton, The Compleat Angler
         (pt. I, ch. XXI)

Of recreation there is none
  So free as fishing is, alone;
    All other pastimes do not less
      Than mind and body, both possess:
        My hand alone my work can do;
          So I can fish and study too.
      - Izaak Walton,
        The Compleat Angler--The Angler's Song

I shall stay him no longer than to wish than to wish him a rainy evening to read this following discourse; and that if he be an honest angler, the east wind may never blow when he goes a-fishing.
      - Izaak Walton,
        The Compleat Angler--To the Reader
         (Author's Preface)

'Tis an employment for my idle time, which is then not idly spent; a rest to my mind, a cheerer of my spirits, a diverter of sadness, a calmer of unquiet thoughts, a moderator of passions, a procurer of contentedness.
      - Sir Henry Wotton,
        in Izaak Walton's "The Compleat Angler", ch. I

There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.
      - Steven Wright

The fish you release maybe a gift to another, as it may have been a gift to you.
      - Lee Wulff
