The Compleat Angler

The Compleat Angler by Izaak Walton
By: (1593-1683)

The Compleat Angler by Izaak Walton is a timeless classic that combines the art of fishing with philosophical musings on the beauty of nature. Walton's love for the sport of fishing is evident throughout the book, as he shares his tips and techniques for successful angling.

What sets this book apart is not just its practical advice, but Walton's deep appreciation for the natural world and his contemplation on the value of simplicity and contentment. The dialogues between Walton and his friend, Piscator, are engaging and thought-provoking, offering insights on the joys of fishing and the importance of conservation.

Overall, The Compleat Angler is a charming and enlightening read that will not only appeal to avid anglers but also to anyone who appreciates the beauty and serenity of the great outdoors. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a peaceful escape into the world of fishing and nature.

Book Description:
The Compleat Angler is a celebration of the art and spirit of fishing in prose and verse. Walton did not profess to be an expert with the fly, but in the use of the live worm, the grasshopper and the frog "Piscator" could speak as a master. There were originally only two interlocutors in the opening scene, "Piscator" and "Viator"; but in the second edition, as if in answer to an objection that "Piscator" had it too much in his own way in praise of angling, he introduced the falconer, "Auceps," changed "Viator" into "Venator" and made the new companions each dilate on the joys of his favourite sport.
