It would sweeten a man's temper at any time to read it, wrote essayist Charles Lamb some years after this novel was first published in 1653. Of course, The Compleat Angler is much more than just a 17th century how-to guide to catching and cooking fish. So disarming is Mr. Walton's quiet enthusiasm for the countryside and all the various delights that it contains that, even if you never have nor ever will pick up a fishing rod, you will benefit from a little time spent in the genial company of the author and his friends.

    " It's funny; I never expected that I will be able to remember all the information in this book but I enjoyed reading it anyway. Perhaps it was because reading this book was a refreshing foray into a simpler time and place, and the simple joys of angling. "

    " Written about a century ago, The Compleat Angler discusses the nature of man and the environment through conversations between various people from different backgrounds. The central chacter is an angler. Look considered a classic among the outdoors community. "

    " Fascinated me as a young teenager and almost converted me to fishing. A delightful read for afternoons spent on summer lawns. "
