Izaak Walton, The Compleat Angler, a contemporary journey exploring the wonder of fly fishing


Can I recommend that you have a look at this You Tube video and walk in the steps of Isaak Walton accompanied by James Prosek a bright young angler artist.  Prosek got Yale University to accept his proposal to travel to the UK to visit Walton’s haunts as a subject for his Senior Thesis. His video produced by Fritz Mitchell and filmed by Peter Franchella gives you a true sense of the wonder of fly fishing and its origins and history.

I find my copy of The Compleat Angler published by The Oxford University Press interesting but quite challenging to read. However, I see it can still be bought from Amazon.
Enjoy
