Book Signing - The Compleat Angler - New Edition

Join us for this special occasion!

We are proud to host our conservation partners, the Izaak Walton League of America, in this special event celebrating the latest edition of Izaak Walton's The Compleat Angler.

Book Sale and Signing - The Compleat Angler - Latest Edition
May 3, 1:30-3 p.m.
Bass Pro Shops
Altoona, Iowa



The Compleat Angler, first printed in 1653, is one of the most influential books of all times as Walton brought together the conservation, recreational, and philosophical aspects of fishing to provide a conservation vision for the future. So powerful and meaningful, the writings forged and inspired the beliefs of the Midwestern outdoorsmen who formed the Izaack Walton League of America, one of our leading conservation organizations.

The Compleat Angler is the second most reprinted book in the English language...second only to the King James Bible.

On May 3, renowned editor Marjorie Swann will join League members at Bass Pro Shops Altoona for a book sale and signing. Swann's newly added introduction to the work, and 50 pages of explanatory notes, highlight the Izaak Walton League and help readers put Walton's vision and passion for fishing, conservation, and the outdoors into today's context.

Please join us to help celebrate this moment in history!


As no man is born an artist, so no man is born an angler.
~Izaak Walton
