Six great Zane Grey quotes on fishing:

“If I fished only to capture fish, my fishing trips would have ended long ago.”

“There are always greater fish than you have caught, always the lure of greater task and achievement, always the inspiration to seek, to endure, to find.”

“Fishing is a condition of the mind wherein one cannot have a bad time.”

“Fishermen, no matter what supreme good fortune befalls them, cannot ever be absolutely satisfied. It is a fundamental weakness of intellect.”

“There was never an angler who lived but that there was a fish capable of taking the conceit out of him.”

“A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with any fisherman’s ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.”


And one non-fishing quote, just because it’s a good one:

“Never insult seven men when all you’re packing is a six-shooter.”
