WORDS OF WIS­DOM

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Know How | Q&a - Arthur Ran­some, Mainly about Fish­ing, 1959

“‘You must al­ways have con­fi­dence in your fly.’ This is al­most the first piece of ad­vice given to the fish­er­man. You must al­ways have con­fi­dence in your fly. Sim­i­larly, if you are given to the­o­ris­ing about your fish­ing, you must al­ways have con­fi­dence in your the­ory. But this does not mean that you must al­ways have con­fi­dence in the same fly or, for that mat­ter, in the same the­ory … The salmon is the fi­nal ar­biter, and if there is one thing about the salmon of which we can be sure it is our own ig­no­rance.”
