“Teach a man to fish and he has to buy a boat and a truck”

“Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime” is a popular saying. There are many jocular variations.  “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and he has to buy graphite rods, reels, spinnerbaits, jigs, crankbaits, jerkbaits, plastics, flies, waders, a boat, & a truck” has been printed on many images.
     
“Give a man a fish and he has fish for a day. Teach a man to fish and he has to buy bamboo rods, graphite reels, monofilament ...” was printed in the newsgroup microsoft.public.win2000 on August 8, 2003. “Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day.  Teach a man to fish and he has to buy rods, reels, line, tackle boxes, lures, fish finders, gps, senkos, more lures, boats, trailers, more lures, something big enough to pull the boat, insurance, life jackets, even more lures, coolers and 12-packs of beer and finally…..fish fillets at the fish store on the way home” was posted in the newsgroup rec.outdoors.fishing.bass on March 27, 2006.
