The Fourth Section treats of angling “improved to spiritual uses”; notes Westwood & Satchell, “Though the 4th section contains frequent allusions to angling the details of the sport are merely employed as pegs to hang moral and religious reflections”, though Boyle states that he is “really a great lover of angling” and frequently diverts himself at that sport.
