At Vaalnest Boutique Hotel at Vaal Marina, Vaaldam, we enjoy interacting to our guests. Some our best clients, are fisherman. We enjoy their sometimes philosophical approach towards life.
Enjoy these quotes of fisherman:

Be patient and calm – for no one can catch fish in anger.” – Herbert Hoover
“Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers. “Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher’s salary” Patrick McManus
“The fish and I were both stunned and disbelieving to find ourselves connected by a line.” William Humphrey in “The Armchair Angler”
Angling is extremely time consuming. That’s sort of the whole point.” – Thomas McGuane
‘’There will be days when the fishing is better than one’s most optimistic forecast, others when it is far worse. Either is a gain over just staying home.” Roderick Haig-Brown
“There is certainly something in angling that tends to produce a gentleness of spirit and a pure sincerity of mind.” Washington Irving
