- “We had been fishing for fifty-five days in a row and the skiff felt tight as a glove. The daily repetitions of launching and running, of poling and looking, had elevated the smallest, most idiotic hint of humor to the level of high comedy.” - Guy de la Valdene
- "The sheer audacity of a laid-up tarpon rolling over backwards to hoover a fly on top has to rank among the best visuals in all of fly fishing!" - Robert Tomes
- “There’s just something about watching fish take a surface fly that I can’t get out of my head.” - Craig Mathews
