    The Compleat Angler eBook ´ The Compleat ePUB ä compleat pdf, angler epub, The Compleat kindle, The Compleat Angler PDF The Compleat Angler is a book that has been continuously in print for than 350 years Indeed about five years ago I saw a nearly 300 year old copy of it in the glass case at Half Price Books being sold for a steep figure It's now freely and easily obtainable online via Project Gutenberg and in other PDF editions as well as in audiobook form via LibravoxSo what could possibly be interesting about a four centuries old fishing book?A lot as it turns outIzaak Walton's objective was not only to craft a how to do book but a how to live one He separates the world into men who stop by the river to look and contemplate versus those who foolishly pass it by in pursuit of their temporal greedy concerns In many ways it is one of the first environmental treatises ever written Walton was a religious man and for him to not stop to smell the roses or to

    The Compleat Angler eBook ´ The Compleat ePUB ä compleat pdf, angler epub, The Compleat kindle, The Compleat Angler PDFA pretty good read in a dialogue format between Piscator Venator and Auceps about fishing in particular and life in general as meandering as a quiet brook While it is primarily about fishing it also celebrates the English countryside and a quiet peaceful pasttime that is also conducive to communing with God The characteristics of different fish are examined in succesive chapters although my favorite section was Part II which covers trout and fly fishing Not a complicated book and one I enjoyed and looked upon as a respite from what I normally read It re energized me for fishing and to dig out my fly rod and flies

    The Compleat Angler eBook ´ The Compleat ePUB ä compleat pdf, angler epub, The Compleat kindle, The Compleat Angler PDFA practical guide to fishing describing the fish how to fish how to prepare fish how to tie flies which baits work best how to build a fish pond Quite a bit of verse and moralizing also thrown in The practical part was wrapped in a story of several men who chanced to meet Most of the book involves the master teaching the art to the scholar The value of the book is historical the description of the art The book though is poorly written Time seems to compress Having just caught a fish Venator let's go merrily to supper and then have a gentle touch at singing and drinking but the last with moderation Coridon Come now for your song for we have fed heartily

    The Compleat Angler eBook ´ The Compleat ePUB ä compleat pdf, angler epub, The Compleat kindle, The Compleat Angler PDFI really liked this book which I stumbled across via a reference made in Robert W Chambers' novel Cardigan by the titular character Walton's commentary throughout is quite entertaining and the fishing advice in the book while ostensibly the point of it is almost incidental in my mind the collected verses humor and pleasant descriptions of pastoral English countryside were my main enjoyments A very pleasant read
