William Cowper Prime, I Go a-Fishing. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1873.
Who can resist a good fish story? The author, an avid angler, begins his with an address to his readers. He hopes they will display a “True angler’s spirit, and will go a-fishing prepared to have a good day of it, even though the weather turn out vile and the sport wretched, then turn over the leaf and let us be starting.”
