Henry David Thoreau

ThoreauPerhaps the most famous advocate of the Transcendentalist movement during the 1820’s and 30’s, Thoreau was a thinker whose beliefs echo within every angler. In his book Walden, he immerses himself fully into the natural world, learning lessons that are ever more relevant today:

“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”
