“Look at where Jesus went to pick people. He didn’t go to the colleges… he got guys off the fishing docks.”- Jeff Foxworthy
“All Americans believe that they are born fishermen. For a man to admit a distaste for fishing would be like denouncing mother-love or hating moonlight.”
“Some go to church and think about fishing, others go fishing and think about God.”
– Tony Blake
“If I fished only to capture fish, my fishing trips would have ended long ago.”
“Fishing is a delusion entirely surrounded by liars in old clothes.” – Don Marquis
