comfortable feeling of independence and leisure, and a quiet assurance of
resources within himself to meet all difficulties that may arise.

An angler, like an Arab, regards hospitality
as a religious duty. There seems to be something in the craft which
inclines the heart to kindness and good-fellowship. Few anglers have I seen
who were not pleasant to meet, and ready to do a good turn to a
fellow-fisherman with a gift of a killing fly or the loan of rod. Not their
own particular and well-proofed favorite, of course, for that is a treasure
which no decent man would borrow; but with that exception the best in their
store is at the service of a brother.
