Mark Twain on Fishing

ABOUT FISHING

You see, in our house there was a sort of family prejudice against going fishing if you hadn’t permission. But it would frequently be bad judgment to ask. So I went fishing secretly, as it were–way up the Mississippi.
– Speech by Mark Twain, March 7, 1906 

But Especially – Do not tell fish stories where the people know you; but particularly, don’t tell them where they know the fish.
– More Maxims of Mark, Johnson, 1927
