        On a Hypocritical Nonconformist (st. 4)

  What Izaak Walton sings or says:
    The quaint, old, cruel coxcomb, in his gullet
      Should have a hook, and a small trout to pull it.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto XIII, st. 106)

There's no taking trout with dry breeches.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra),

You must loose a flie to catch a trout.
  [You must lose a fly to catch a trout.]
      - George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum

Where the pools are bright and deep
  Where the gray trout lies asleep,
    Up the river and o'er the lea
      That's the way for Billy and me.
      - James Hogg ("The Ettrick Shepherd"),
        A Boy's Song

My father was very sure about certain matters pertaining to the universe. To him, all good things--trout as well as eternal salvation--come by grace and grace comes by art and art does not come easy.
      - Norman Fitzroy Maclean,
        A River Runs Through It   BUY VARYING HARE USED BOOK  

Groping for trouts in a peculiar river.
      - William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure

Lie thou there; for here comes the trout that must be caught with tickling.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will

Some circumstantial evidence is very strong, as when you find a trout in the milk.
      - Henry David Thoreau, Journal
