Untitled[edit]

In the biography section, there is a statement that “in 1650 he was again living in Clerkenwel” but there is no previous reference to Clerkenwell in the article. What is the significance of “again”? Furry 13:02, 22 July 2007 (UTC)


A large part of this article should be moved to a separate article on The Compleat Angler. -- Zoe

Trivia?[edit]

Is it appropriate to 'demote' the location of the IW Hotel to trivia. It's location and naming are directly related to IW's work on that stretch of the Dove... Bob aka Linuxlad 20:32, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

I've reinstated the reference. Linuxlad (talk) 11:33, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Snowclone?[edit]

If this is the origin of the habit of titling things The Compleat..., I'd like to see a mention of that. (Given how many times I've seen people attempt to "correct" this spelling, I think it's significant enough. --Wintersweet 04:23, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Dad a tippler?[edit]

The article says Walton's father was a 'tippler'. The link leads to a kind of pigeon, if I recall correctly. If the father was an alcoholic, or habitual drinker, perhaps these words can be used. Does anyone know?Alpheus (talk) 22:07, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

I would guess that the error crept in from reading this passage:

Assuming that his father was not a pigeon, I have changed the wording to "landlord of a tavern". Ogg (talk) 20:00, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Doctor Who?[edit]

The article states that the Doctor remembers meeting 'Sir Walton'...but Izaak Walton was not a knight (and also that should have been 'Sir Izaak'). Is this a quote from the relevant episode - in which case should it be in quotation marks? gifu —Preceding undated comment added 11:19, 3 October 2011 (UTC).
