Yesterday I stirred the pot a bit much, unintentionally. Today to lighten things up a bit and to explain how I think about things. I would like to see some fishing quotes from people you admire or just connect to in regards to fly fishing. Here are a couple that I like. The first may not be directly about fly fishing but was written by a person I admire greatly and encourage all to read his books. The second is one that I always thought explained the fisherman well.

"I have been, all my life, what is known as a conservationist. It seems clear beyond possibility of argument that any given generation of men can have only a lease, not ownership, of the earth; and one essential term of the lease is that the earth be handed down on to the next generation with unimpaired potentialities. This is the conservationist's concern."

Roderick Haig-Brown

"Besides egotism there is in every fisherman a humor, a certain loquaciousness, a friendly levity, an inclination to argument, an inexplicable sense of the pleasure in idling hours along a river, and a peculiar tendency toward exaggeration which he can recognize in his companion, but is rarely capable of seeing in himself."
