"Ice fishing does offer a maximum of exercise and labor for a minimum of pleasure and excitement." "But if you do go ice fishing, do not blame me when you get home, if you do get home... I think that the only important truth I have left out is that a man gets fed up with being comfortable and sane."
"And another thing that makes it easier to ice fish is that one need not worry about their backcasts." - Arthur R. Macdougall Jr., "Fishing Through the Ice"
