So, I am close to done with my first Haig-Brown book. Several times in the past year I have found myself wondering, why in the hell am I not reading Haig-Brown? I mentioned this to my friend John and he was kind enough to loan me Fisherman's Fall. Anyways, there have been several excellent sentences in the book, but this is one of my favorite.
writing of the sources of peoples' fascination with fishing...
"Highest among them I would place the impossibility, for nearly all of us anyway, of achieving anything approaching complete and regular success, in spite of the delightful delusion that success of this sort is never far away."
Thats good stuff.
