Piscator Non Solum Piscatur

Certain social predicaments seem to arise naturally among anglers. Consider, for example, the passing of a bit of good advice from one angler to another — it’s an act of generosity that is often quickly and conveniently forgotten once the hot tip is put into play.
This week South African trout preserve owner and author Wolf Avni shares the hilarious perspective of a guide caught in a grating exchange between erstwhile angling partners, a pompous classicist and an unrefined, but repentant, “coarse” fisherman. It’s a nice change of literary pace excerpted from Avni’s eccentric and entertaining book A Mean-Mouthed Hook-Jawed Bad-News Son-of-a-Fish.
