Mr. B. Goes out by John Leech. The seventh plate in the series “Mr. Brigg's Pleasures of Fishing.” The caption continues: “His chief difficulty is, that every time he throws his line — the hooks for which there are five — will stick behind his jacket and tr-ws-rs.” [Note how beautifully Leech has once again rendered the landscape background.]
