Thus in bitterness of heart exclaimed, on a day of peculiar irritation, one of the most ardent anglers that ever fished the Hampshire chalk streams. Perhaps . Job was not. The evidence is negative, though the glorious book to which he gives his name expressly discourages us from angling for Leviathan. It is, however, about smaller people of the water than this Leviathan that I mean to write to you. The hope of the most ambitious of commencing anglers should be bounded by fifty pounds weight of live salmon at his lines end, and even this is a large pleasure that few of us ever reach. The present is a day of smaller things again. I am assuming that you will commence trout-fisher before angling for the salmon. You cannot do much with either until you have mastery of the first rudiments of casting a fly, but when you have learnt the more or less effective casting of the trout fly you will almost, in your stride, take the next step which leads to casting of the salmon fly so far the more difficult and finer art of the two is the former. I take for granted that you will begin and, further, as trout-fisher, will continue until the end of your lifes chapter with a single-handed rod. . . . . This item ships from multiple locations.
