First Published in 1653, Izaak Walton's "The Compleat Angler" is a much loved treatise on the art of fishing. In the 1676 edition of the book, Charles Cotton added a second part thus expanding the volume. Those two parts are included here in this edition. "The Compleat Angler" is a classic of fishing literature and a copy belongs in the library of any true sportsman.
