Authors & Events
Izaak Walton, one of the earliest English biographers, is best remembered as the author of The Compleat Angler. In 1676 Walton asked a young follower, the poet Charles Cotton, to furnish a supplement on fly-fishing for the fifth edition of the book, a project that the two pursued at a cottage on the banks of the Dove River in Derbyshire.
