The Complete Angler: Or, Contemplative Man's Recreation: Being A Discourse on Rivers, Fish-Ponds, Fish, and Fishing
WALTON, Izaac; COTTON, Charles; RENNIE, James (ed.)
The last forty years of Walton's life were spent visiting eminent clergymen and others who enjoyed fishing, compiling the biographies of people he liked, and collecting information for The Compleat Angler. He sometimes visited Charles Cotton in his fishing house on the Dove. The first edition of his book The Compleat Angler was published in 1653. Notes by Sir John Hawkins.
