    This piece of advice comes from…

    The Complete American and Canadian Sportsman’s Encyclopedia of Valuable Instruction (Revised Edition, 1913)
    By “Buzzacott”
    First published 1905 by M.A. Donohue & Co. Chicago Illinois, U.S.A.
    Written by Francis H. Buzzacott

    It is one of 48 pieces of advice, sixth in the list, given under the heading “Wrinkles and Kinks for Fishermen, Anglers, Etc.,” but it’s as accurate today as it was back in 1905 or ’13.

    Don’t Blame the Fish – For not biting, or taking the fly. Perhaps you’re to blame. Think over conditions and inspect your bait or tackle.

    A fish down there was giggling and tied their lines all in knots.

    Why were they standing so close together? Seems to me they all need a brain implant more than anger management

    In my mind, fishing is just an excuse to go somewhere and vegetate…also a good way to upset your spouse or anyone who cleans up after you!

    Shouldn’t that be ANGLER management?
    Sorry couldn’t resist that one :)

    A bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work anytime.

    fishing…there are many places where we are over-fishing. they say blame demand. also, some fishing shows on tv seemed too staged, especially the ones where the fisherman is fishing from his private pond and stocked with his own fish, and he needs a state of the art boat and equipment.

    It doesn’t hurt that the guy with the scissors owns stock in a fishing equipment supply company… ‘Cut that out… yeah, like that…’

    Ah, yes. The peace and serenity of communing with the great outdoors.

    Well, sorta.

    Al Jaffee’s "Smart Answers to Stupid Questions:

    Said to the person with a rod & reel, sitting next to a bait bucket: “Are you fishing?”

    “Nope. Drowning worms.”
