"The Compleat Angler" by Izaak Walton, published in 1652, is the book of books of the sport of Fly fishing. This is truly the holy grail of the sport of sports. Anyone who wants to better understand the art and sport of Fly Fishing, whether they fly fish or not, should read this book. No outdoor life library would be complete without it. It's a literary masterpiece. Walton artistically describes through allegory, why men and women fly fish. It explains why one would spend thousands of dollars on equipment, travel thousands of miles, and stand in a river for several days just to catch a few fish, and then release them unharmed.
