they are the production of practical Anglers, and are addressed to the feelings and sentiments of those who have a sympathy with them in the prosecution of their common craft. A man who makes verses with a rod in his hand, on his wanderings and musings on the river side, does not pretend to ap­peal to the deep sympathies of the world at large. His themes are trite—his range very limited ; and the extent of his ambition is, that his effusions may be relished by those who are fond of a common source of amusement and recreation. He challen­ges no learned criticism, nor does he expect his brow to be encircled with wreaths of laurel.
For enthusiastic Anglers—and they are now a numerous and daily-increasing body in every civil­ized country—this volume is, therefore, more espe­cially designed. And I can only say, that if the reader derives half the pleasure from its perusal, that I have experienced in collecting its contents, he will find it the cheapest work he ever pur­chased.
