Fisherman Quotation

Fly fisherman spend hours tying little clumps of fur and feathers on hooks,
trying to make a trout fly that looks like a real fly.
But nobody has ever seen a natural insect trying to mate with a
Fanwing Ginger Quill.

Quotation from the book “HOOKED Funny Quotes from Serious Anglers” Edited by Raye Carrington
