Excerpt from Clear Waters: Trouting Days and Trouting Ways in Wales, the West Country, and the Scottish Borderland

What is it and whence comes it?

A different insect I think from that which sends the young idea to horse or gun, to bat or ball, constantly as both are found in the same small body. I have myself had most of these other complaints as violently as is common. Childhood and youth are by instinct gregarious. But this angling microbe sends even gregarious youth away into solitudes, where there is no company but his own, no shouting, no competition, no applause, no glory. If it were the unsociable, the studious, the delicate who usually fell a victim there would be nothing in it But as a matter of fact this is not very often the case. It is much more frequently the other sort who in the mysterious magnetism of the stream find a something that is not measured to any extent worth mentioning by success, rivalry, or applause, but nevertheless holds them tight. There are thousands of well-to-do men in this country who are neither good performers, nor really care much about it, yet carry a gun regularly.
