Fishing Temple for Sale

The fisherman's hut, or more like a stone temple, built by Charles Cotton to honor Izaak Walton on the banks of the River Dove is for sale in Staffordshire.  There can not be a more sacred place in all of fly fishing.  Above the door to the retreat is a stone which reads "Piscatoribys Sacrvm 1674", or in English, "Sacred to Fisherman"  You can see the hut in the Complete Angler around 25:30, link below.
