Thoreau; way ahead of his time!

I was performing some much needed clutter control on my hard drive today when I came across the following quote:

" No new endeavor is worth undertaking, unless it requires the purchase of substantial amounts of new equipment."- Henry David Thoreau, (Referring to fly fishing.)

Words to live by, don't you think?

RE:Thoreau; way ahead of his time!

Absolutely! Well if HDT (being one not swayed by material things) can rationalize flygear than certainly I can too

I like another of his quotes: "Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing it is not fish they are after".

Thanks Mark
