“Old fishermen never die—they just lose their bobbers”

“Old soldiers never die—they just fade away” is an old saying that was popularized by General Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964) in his farewell address to Congress on April 19, 1951. Many parodies of the saying have been made.

“Old fishermen never die—they just lose their bobbers” has been printed on many wall decorations. The saying has been cited in print since at least 2007.

“Old fishermen never die—they just smell that way” is another popular saying about fishermen.
