Running Waters

Datus Proper, Author Lyons Press $24.95 (176p) ISBN 978-1-58574-280-6
In the 20 years he has had to fish and write about fishing since releasing What the Trout Said, Datus Proper has written dozens of stories about the palpable magic that occurs when an angler with his fly meets up with a fish in his stream. Collected here and aptly titled Running Waters: Where Angler, Fish, and Fly Are Destined to Meet, these wry and witty essays range through childhood to adulthood, encompassing the waters Proper's fished, the people he's met along the way and the fish his beloved brook trout, specifically that have given him a run for his money.
