Classic collection of essays about fishing in Scotland. It begins: "These papers do not boast of great sport.They are truthful, not like the tales some fishers tell.They should appeal to many sympathies.There is no false modesty in the confidence with which I esteem myself a duffer, at fishing.Some men are born duffers; others, unlike persons of genius, become so by an infinite capacity for not taking pains.Others, again, among whom I would rank myself, combine both these elements of incompetence.Nature, that made me enthusiastically fond of fishing, gave me thumbs for fingers, short-sighted eyes, indolence, carelessness, and a temper which (usually sweet and angelic) is goaded to madness by the laws of matter and of gravitation."
