James Prosek, the visionary visual artist, includes the essay and fiction writer. His collected works have already secured him a lasting position in the lineage of angling literature.

My first encounter with Prosek occurred on the pages of The Complete Angler: A Connecticut Yankee Follows in the Footsteps of Walton. That book remains a special experience reserved for bright spring days as pastel as the pages of this fine book.

Prosek continues to create art and prose. A sample of his current project printed in The New York Times celebrates fly fishing for trout.

Prosek appears to be going beyond angling to the broader topic of the terminology and classification of flora and fauna. Has the work impressed your own angling reading? How has Prosek's approach stood beside that of other, sometimes much more extreme, angling artists and authors?

Good Reading . . .

Robert | 7 comments A lovely piece by Prosek. There is no one quite like him in world wide trout sphere. Thanks, Ron, for drawing attention to it. I had missed it in the NY Times.
