The Complete Angler - Full length version

The Complete Angler is a film by James Prosek (artist/writer), Fritz Mitchell (producer/editor) and Peter Franchella (cinematographer). It documents Prosek's travels as he walks in the footsteps of the 17th century English writer, Izaak Walton—"research" for his senior thesis at Yale. The film focuses on Walton's book, The Compleat Angler, a book that many have heard of but few have actually read.

Chapter 1 - James leaves Connecticut for Ireland and England, catching a few trout in his home streams and musing about his youth, fishing, and some Waltonian ideals. He visits the library at Yale and examines a first edition of Walton's Compleat Angler from 1653. Then he sits for a reading of Yeat's poem, The Song of Wandering Aengus, by Harold Bloom.

Chapter 2 - James goes to Ireland to experience the earliest form of fly-fishing, dapping live mayflies impaled on fine-wire hooks for brown trout on the lakes of the Connemara region. He visits with a boy who collects and sells live mayflies to the fishermen, and salmon fishes along the Eriff River.

Chapter 3 - James fishes a tributary of the Thames in London that Walton fished three hundred and fifty years before, the River Lea. Walton was forced out of London during the English Civil War and returned to the pastoral beauty of his homeland in Derbyshire and the beautiful River Dove in the Peak District.

Chapter 4 - James visits the "fishing temple" on the River Dove, which Charles Cotton (considered the father of modern fly-fishing) built in honor of his friend Izaak Walton.

Chapter 5 - James fishes with Sir John Swire, an upper-class Englishman who talks about his love of fishing and of Izaak Walton's ideals and life philosophy.

Chapter 6 - James visits Victoria Wakefield who helped him secure fishing on the renowned chalk streams, the Test and Itchen in Hampshire. She introduces him to Roger Harrison, who owns a beautiful stretch of water on the Itchen with lots of wild trout. There, James encounters a milkmaiden.

Final Chapter - James visits Izaak Walton's grave in a chapel in Winchester Cathedral, and discusses the last years of his life. Then he sings a song in a meadow by the river and returns to the fishing at the pond near his home in Connecticut.

It's very hard, not to say impossible to take the hypocrisy seriously one
often hears from hunters, anglers and the like. They make a great show of
telling us how they
just l o v e nature and wildlife sooo much; they love the wildlife so
much that they trample out in woods and fields and streams to kill the
animals they love -be they fish or birds or beasts- just to watch them
die, -for the very fun of it.
-A rather sick form of pastime.
The hollowness of their words is hard to stomach, and so is the sad fact
that these fools rush in in their big wellies to spread death and
destruction where angels fear to tread.
Personally I find it much more attractive to watch live animals and study
their habits and habitats than blow or cut them out of being.

Yesterday morning I left the Charles Cotton Hotel in Hartington in the
Debyshire Dales to fish the Temple Beat on the River Dove, lit a fire in
the sandstone fireplace that has Charles Cottons initials carved upon and
thought back to those two men sitting by that very fishing hut some 340
years ago. I caught a beautiful wild brownie on a dry sedge, using a lovely
old split 7' cane rod, a small Hardy Perfect with a silk line on the lower
beat below Pyke's Pool. Within a cavernous green moss covered valley, I
walked the beat to the Temple and watched Graylings spawning in an ecstatic
dance in the middle of the stream. A wonderful day.

What a lovely film. In November of 2011 six of us from my
traditionalfisherman.co.uk forum visited the tomb of Izaak in Winchester
Cathedral. We paid our respects before setting off to fish the River Itchen
to catch some grayling. Is it possible to purchase this DVD in England.

LOL! My grandma used to poach them in milk with onions and never used lemon
and butter. It was awful in my childhood opinion. My grandfather made me
keep every one until I had a limit of 5 fish, then that was my lunch. I
guess that is why I throw them back now :)

As a true brother of the angle, I found myself glowing as you walked
through the mist of Waltons footsteps, breathing life into my angling
heart.I too,find myself at times,on the rivers bank betwixt an evergreen
and an oak, listening intently for the milk maids song.And as I look
through window of time can hear Waltons voice, reassuring me, that mine is
a good life and pureNot to full of wordly things to truly take in the trout
and the mayfly and the angler that is in all men that God hath made

Thanks for the effort that you put in to make this rather special film. it
is great to hear someone express the other reasons that some of us fish,
the connection with nature, the peace and the solitude that allows us to
ponder on who and what we are. Staring into deep water from childhood - a
pond, a river whirl-pool or a lake has a profound effect on one's adult
life. You seem to have grown up very nicely, good luck with whatever you do.

Excellent, you capture the essence, many fail to experience in our modern
times. I love the quote a writer/artist can transcend classes... but can't
help wish it was simple to fish freely when/where you liked, rather than
being priviliged/charged. Maybe then angling could be enjoyed by more and
have a better protected future. I also think you missed quoting your fello
american Thoreau explaining why you fish with "Many men go fishing all
their lives without knowing it is not fish they are after"

I found your film very compelling, I'm so glad that I'm not alone in my
fishing world. I didn't know until watching your film that Izaak Walton was
buried at Winchester cathedral, I was taken there once when i was in the
light infantry by my corporal. I felt a strange eeriness as I walked around
in there and now you've made it all make sense.....thank you so much!! I
often feel lost in this era, as if i should have been living years ago,
it's so refreshing to find people making films like yours.
