Now flies and palmers 1 would dress,
Aquatic insects too, And all their various seasons guess ;
Their uses well I know. So now the perfect Angler,
With rod and line and hook, I shun each noisy wrangler,
To fish the murm'ring brook.

THE TENCH OF THORNVILLE HOUSE

They hit, I trow, Full nineteen shots in twenty.
Their fame to fix,
'Midst other tricks, In which they so delight, Sir;
These blabes, prey know,
The hatchet throw, Till it is out of sight. Sir.
