Tell me what the following line means from Forgetting by Robet Lynd:
The fishing-rod of reality is forgotten by him as he day-dreams over the fears of the fishing-rod of Utopia.
Especially, “the fears of the fishing-rod of Utopia”.

The line is mistranscribed. It is
... the feats of the fishing-rod of Utopia.
When feats is replaced by fears, the line does not make very much sense.
And in case you're still confused, what the actual line means is that he forgets about the real fishing-rod while he's thinking about all the amazing things that the imaginary fishing-rod of Utopia has done.
