Izaak Walton League heritage continues locally

By GARRY BRANDENBURG , Times-Republican

IZAAK WALTON lived a long time ago. However, his writings and his vision for assemblies of like-minded people to care for the land carry on today just as strong as ever. The passion that drove Izaak Walton was fishing. In fact, his dedication to his chosen sport induced him and his close friend Charles Cotton to write a book, "The Compleat Angler" his fifth and final version, that was published in 1676. It has been used as a reference ever since to help guide people to look at the big picture for care of natural resources. Walton wanted everyone to get to know the land in such a way as to be able to live in harmony with nature. It was and still is a noble cause.
