From over 100 years ago:
“There is only one theory about angling in which I have perfect confidence, and this is that the two words, least appropriate to any statement about fishing, are the words ‘always’ and ‘never’.
- Lord Grey of Fallodon: Fly-fishing
“It is possible it may be only a fancy that one colour is of more consequence than another; yet sometimes the pleasing of the fancy does so much enliven and encourage the fisherman, that it makes him the more active and laborious, and so by that means is the occasion of all his sport, and if his fancy divert him another way, he will take the less care and pains in his present pastime.”
Mr Nobbes saw in 1682 that anglers easily get caught to a limited selection of colours and that was when only a fraction of choice was available compared to modern patterns, shapes, sizes and styles were available.
We have an ubundence of choice nowadays, are you making the most out of the contents of your tackle box?
When Adam in Eden grew tired o’ his life,
Diggin’ and delvin’, they gied him a wife,
Had they gein him a gaud, wi’ a line an’ a flee;
Commonsense wad hae keepit him aff o’ the Tree;
He wad ne’er bae gane near it ae stap o’ his fit,
He micht hae been fishin’ the Hiddekel yit!
