Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Izaak Walton
  Our Angles are like money put to usury; they may thrive, though we sit still and do nothing but talk and enjoy one another.  1
  Angling is somewhat like Poetry, men are to be born so.  2
  Angling may be said to be so like the Mathematics that it can never be fully learnt; at least not so fully but that there will still be more new experiments left for the trial of other men that succeed us.  3
  Clear as the crystal brooks.  4
  With as much ease as whirlwinds move feathers.  5
  Free as fishing is.  6
  Sure as creed.  7
