George Harvey

You wait a moment to settle your nerves
Then make your cast with a right hand curve
The fly settles down and the float looked good
But the trout refused it and there you stood
A dejected fly fisherman.
You looked things over and were not yet beat
Then changed flies again and were ready to repeat
The next try was poor because you rushed the cast
You hold your breath in solemn anticipation
More George Harvey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Fly fishing is a very pleasant amusement; but angling or float
fishing, I can only compare to a stick and a string, with a worm
at one end and a fool at the other.More George Harvey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
At early dawn when the air is crisp
And you're standing knee deep in a beautiful rip
You see a trout rise to an unknown fly
Then your heart starts to thump and you wonder why
You're a neophyte fly fisherman.
You can measure the cast and study the lie
Then lengthen the line to make your first try
As you check the rod to get a good presentation
You hold your breath in solemn anticipation
