“Sure, it was your idea and your fly, but he caught the big fish. Remember, fairness is a human idea largely unknown in nature.”
John Gierach, Death, Taxes, and Leaky Waders: A John Gierach Fly-Fishing Treasury

“If people don't occasionally walk away from you shaking their heads, you're doing something wrong.”
John Gierach

“A couple of hundred dollars for a fishing pole!?¨ You'll hear that all the time if you don't keep your mouth shut in certain company. You can talk about the aesthetics and even mention a cane rod will appreciate in value while a new graphite rod will depreciate, but the best thing to do is turn around and say, ¨$9,000.00 for a car? I only paid $500.00 for mine.”
John Gierach, Trout Bum
