It’s old English. As MacBook’s dictionary says, the “archaic spelling of complete.”
You may have seen it before, i.e., The Compleat Angler, where I stole it. Izaak Walton wrote that in 1653. Though I’ve never actually read it.
The profile box for 411#3 contains “compleat” as most posts will have some fly fishing content. But fly fishing does not pay the bills (yet) and no man is an island (unless island = me flailing in a cold, fast river while waders fill), so we’ll cover many different topics.
The Compleat Angler is referenced in The River Why, a magnificent work of fiction by David James Duncan. I strongly recommend it to anyone. You can order it online through Amazon or through a local, independent bookstore like Westminster Books.
Or you can just wait for the movie. Guys, it has Amber Heard in it. Girls, it has Zach Gilford from Friday Night Lights in it.
