The Simple Angler

"I say, Sir, if you take us Anglers to be such simple men as I have spoken of, then both my self, and those of my profession will be glad to be so understood.  But if by simplicitie you meant to expresse any general defect in the understanding of those that professe and practice Angling, I hope to make it appear to you, that there is so much contrary reason (if you have but the patience to hear it) as remove all the anticipations that Time or Discourse may have possess'd you with, against that Ancient and laudable Art."   The Complete Angler 1653 (Izaak Walton)
