"SIMPSON. – Have you ever seen any American books on angling, Fisher?
"FISHER. – No. I do not think there are any published. Brother Jonathan is not yet sufficiently civilized to produce anything original on the gentle art. There is good trout-fishing in America, and the streams, which are all free, are much less fished than in our Island, 'from the small number of gentlemen,' as an American writer says, 'who are at leisure to give their time to it.'"

– WILLIAM ANDREW CHATTO: The Angler's Souvenir (London, 1835).
