Perthshire Fisherman

A certain clergyman in Perthshire, who was more proficient in fishing than in preaching, was conversing one morning with some members of his congregation on the benefits of early rising, and as an instance he mentioned that he had that very morning got up at five o’clock, and before breakfast had actually written a sermon, and caught a very fine salmon.

“Well, sir,” quietly replied one of the company, who had no great respect for his minister’s pulpit abilities, “let
me tell you, I would rather have your salmon than your sermon.”
