I'm writing from Argentina, and I'm doing a work for college about Ernest Hemingway related to fishing. I've found a phrase that is attributed to him and I would like to ask you if it is, in which book I can find it. The passage is something like this: "THE VICTORY OVER THE FISH ASSURES THE PURIFICATION THAT ALLOWS YOU TO BE ADMITTED AMONG THE MOST ANCIENT GODS" I don´t know if it's textually right but this is the main idea. For sure you have the main passage and can tell me if it was said or written by Ernest Hemingway and where.
I appreciate your time and help.
Thank you very much.

Lucas

 That  phrase sounds really pretentious.
Hemingway was  known for his
ability to write honestly, without hype,
not for this sort of metaphysical mumbo-jumbo.

 Maybe it was Nostradamus, not Hemingway.
Or  maybe you  found a  really bad  translation.
