What keeps this 1653 classic on fishing alive is its celebration of the pleasures of the countryside and the moral virtue of a simple pastime. The Compleat Angler will reveal itself as a charming dialogue between an experienced angler named Piscator, Venator, his newfound disciple, and a fowler named Auceps.
