In the Spring of 2004 issue of Fish & Fly magazine is a wonderful article written by the late Datus Proper. It is about fly fishing for wild brook trout in the Shenandoah National Park. Datus was an angler who has fished all over the world, but his true passion was fishing for these little trout of the springs, and especially in the Spring as the woods again came to life. He writes of the times on these streams and of some of the people and history of the region. If you have or can access a copy of this article you'll truly enjoy it.
A precious wild brook trout.
