Trout fishing in America

Lys had posed for me all the week, and today being Saturday, and I lazy, we had decided to take a little relaxation, she to visit and gossip with her little black-eyed friend Yvette in the neighbouring hamlet of St. Julien, and I to try the appetites of the Breton trout with the contents of my American fly book. —Robert W. Chambers, "The Purple Emperor" (from The Mystery of Choice, 1897)
