Going fishing is only part of the fun. Sometimes what people talk and write about afterwards adds even more enjoyment to the sport. Here are a few things that have happened along the way, and a few sayings taken from the walls of fishing establishments and restaurants.

A dad and son were fishing from the shoreline, when all of a sudden the boy catches a big fish.

He asks, "What are we going to do with it?"

The dad answered, "I don't know. This has never happened before."

Next, a statement printed on a sign in a tackle shop read, "Work hard - fish harder!" Another, similar to the first, had a more sobering message. "Born to fish; forced to work."

One that is sure to get your attention read, "A bad day of fishing beats a good day of shopping with my wife at the mall."

And, a post on a popular website read, "Missing - husband, boat, fishing tackle and dog - Reward for dog."

There is an eyeball mounted on a plaque on a wall in an area tackle shop.

The one word caption reads, "Walleye."

Another, on a Lake Norman charter boat says, "I would rather be lost on Lake Norman than be found at home."

And another favorite reads, "Caution - fishing and hunting stories in progress. Protective boots might be required."

To encourage people to buy more gear, one shop has this notice posted at the front door.

"Fishermen never have enough rods, reels, tackle boxes and lures."

That's probably why one angler's favorite saying is, "I spent most of my money on fishing. The rest I wasted."

A bass fisherman once said, and he really meant it: "Some people have a drinking problem. Mine is fishing."

There has always been a bit of rivalry between hunters and fishermen. Maybe this explains the saying, Hunters lie and wait; fishermen wait and lie."

This thought is appropriate in today's hurried world - "So many fish; so little time." And, for those new to the sport, this one offers some good advice: "Only fish on days that end with the letter Y.
