Heard occasionally from "bankies" at boat launches:

"Hey, I'm fishing here!"

"Why can't you launch somewhere else?"

"I think that the fish can sense it through the rod, down the line, and into the fly that, ‘Oh this guy is a loser’. Because I just can’t catch fish. Every fish I’ve caught is a mistake."

Similarly, “that rod will march”, a quote in reference to a Winston WT rod from a Montana guide. Not that Montana guides are the arbiter, but WTs were (& still are) pretty special, especially for trouts.
