Famous quotes containing the word fishermen:

    The fishermen say that the “thundering of the pond” scares the fishes and prevents their biting.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    As they are not seen on their way down the streams, it is thought by fishermen that they never return, but waste away and die, clinging to rocks and stumps of trees for an indefinite period; a tragic feature in the scenery of the river bottoms worthy to be remembered with Shakespeare’s description of the sea-floor.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
