“As no man is born an artist, so no man is born an angler.” Isaak Walton’s The Compleat Angler, long considered the bible of fishing, is a joyful celebration of the English countryside and the relaxed and reflective lifestyle of the devoted fisherman. Through dialogue between teacher and student, the book sheds unique light on fishing, baiting and cooking, including an original recipe for trout. Its music, rhymes, poetry, and humor are all brought to life by full cast. As winding as a quiet brook and as bountiful as a bursting riverbank, The Compleat Angler is essential listening for any outdoors enthusiast. The Compleat Angler has been in print for more than 250 years, but is as fresh and relevant today as it was two and a half centuries ago. It is considered a ‘must read’ for every new generation of fishermen and women. This is the first unabridged cast reading, and it features original song compositions.
