Minor edgewear and bumps to corners, else new. *** (Synopsis) In this lyrical collection of essays, Datus Proper takes you to where you and the fish and the fly meet, in that window between stream and sky. Running Waters is where four themes come together: the people, the waters, the flies, and the fish that pull anglers up the mountains and into the streams. With his distinctive voice, Proper introduces you to the People of the Stream, colorful characters such as Betty Cave, who remembers when the trout were bigger in the streams running through the Appalachian land once owned by her family, and Curt Collins, the Bighorn fishing guide who prepares riverside meals as impressive as the fishing. In Running Water Proper explores the best fishing streams in the world, from the limestone creeks of Pennsylvania to the Mondego River in Portugal. His musings on flies and hatches, from caddisflies to mayflies, make up the third section, The Way of a Fly with a Trout. Finally, in Wild Fish, Proper takes a peek into the waters, examining the fish that draw him to their banks, from the humble brown trout to the aptly named, showy rainbows., AB00557.Historical Note: Datus Carryer Proper was born in Des Moines, Iowa on April 18, 1934, the son of William Glisan Proper and Marjorie Carryer Proper.
