What say you about these collector reads...
I'm curious about their approach, content, and how they relate to what we enjoy today...(and I suspect that they centre around the salt free zone)...

Pete... I will call you tomorrow from Chatham... the American Anglers Handbook...has the "striped Bass". The Salmonia is interseting in that it takes on the "conversational" method that Walton used in Compleat Angler. Woolners in all salt.
