BIFF - Because I Fly Fish

“If you want to fish, fish.” German Proverb

“Don't tell fish stories where the people know you; but particularly, don't tell them where they know the fish.”

Mark Twain

“Why does a salmon rise? Why does a small boy cross the street just to kick a tin can?”

Lee Wulff

“There are some people I don't make any effort to fish with, although I like them well enough. They won't laugh when a fish strikes; they don't see that fish have very funny faces.”

M. R. Montgomery

“The way a good rod first flexes and then extends its muscles as the line quickens, tightens, rises off the water and does figure eights in mid-air is one of the miracles of humanly applied dynamics.”

John Hillaby

Afloat

“On the Firehole I caught thirty-six inches worth of trout - in six installments.”

Arnold Gingrich

Men and fish are alike. They both get into trouble when they open their mouths.

Because I Hunt Birds

Respect beyond the river, into the field …

“In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when preserved by sportsmen.”

Theodore Roosevelt

“If some animals are good at hunting and others are suitable for hunting, then the Gods must clearly smile on hunting.”

Aristotle

“We cannot but pity the boy who has never fired a gun; he is no more humane, while his education has been sadly neglected.”

Henry David Thoreau

“The emotions that good hunters need to cultivate are love and service more than courage. The sentiments of the hunt then become translated into art.”

James Swan

Afield

“I don’t regard nature as a spectator sport.”

Ed Zern

I never wrote a poem in my life. But if I ever do, it will be about ducks.
