I have never seen a river that I could not love. Moving water... has a fascinating vitality. It has power and grace and associations. It has a thousand colors and a thousand shapes, yet it follows laws so definite that the tiniest streamlet is an exact replica of a great river.More Roderick Haig-Brown quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A man should think when he fishing of all manner and shape of things, flowing as easily through the mind as the light stream among the rocksMore Roderick Haig-Brown quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have two hopes for the future. The first and lesser one is that game commissions will one day have sense enough to set limits that measurably reflect the sport safely available. The second and deeply urgent one is that we shall grow a race of sportsmen no one of whom will ever consider it a matter of pride to have killed a limit.More Roderick Haig-Brown quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A fisherman is always hopeful -- nearly always more hopeful than he has any right to be.More Roderick Haig-Brown quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is quite easy to debase the sport, change its values, dilute its ethics and destroy its traditional associations with quietness, relaxation and the opportunity to think. Angling is not a competitive sport. The fisherman'- s only real competition is with his quarry and his only real challenge is the challenge to himself. Nothing can add to this, but the blight of interhuman competition can certainly detract from it.More Roderick Haig-Brown quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
