This book is part of the "Everyman" series, which has been totally re-set with wide margins and easy-to-read type. It includes an introduction, a chronology of the life and times of the author and a selection of criticism. It provides a blend of practical advice on fishing, anecdote, natural history, poetry and song. Taking the form of a dialogue between an angler, a falconer and a hunter, this book contains a wealth of advice to fishermen. In modern times, however, it is largely read for the attitude of life it embodies rather than the sport it commends - a celebration of a contented life in tranquil surroundings.

One of the most popular works of the seventeenth century, The Complete Angler (1653) is an irresistible blend of practical advice on fishing, natural history, poetry, fabulous antiquity and song. Walton, nostalgic Royalist and friend of bishops, presents the modest angler's life as equal to the sport of kings.
