WALTON, I. / COTTON, C.: Compleat Angler (The) (Unabridged)

‘As no man is born an artist, so no man is born an angler.’

Isaak Walton’s The Compleat Angler, long considered the bible of fi shing, is a joyful celebration of the English countryside and the relaxed and reflective lifestyle of the devoted fi sherman. Through dialogue between teacher and student, the book sheds a unique light on fi shing, baiting and cooking, including an original recipe for trout. Its music, rhymes, poetry, and humour are all brought to life by a full cast. As winding as a quiet brook and as bountiful as a bursting riverbank, The Compleat Angler is essential listening for any outdoors enthusiast.
