Rivers Run : An Angler's Journey from Source to Sea, Hardback

Rivers Run : An Angler's Journey from Source to Sea Hardback


"Kevin Parr knows how to fish, how to read a river and how to write.

A book that flows like a river". (Chris Yates, author of Out of the Blue). Rivers Run is a love letter to Britain's rivers and waterways by well-known angler and naturalist Kevin Parr.

On a journey around his favourite watery hideaways - such as the River Stour in Dorset, the Exe in Devon, the Avon in the Midlands and Parrs Pool in Shropshire - the author shares the thoughts and insights that bubble up while sitting peacefully by the riverside, watching the world go by and waiting for the fish to bite.

Each river that he visits has played a central part in his own development as both an angler and a person, and reflects the ways in which landscape, wildlife and plants mirror the themes that flow through all our lives.

Rivers Run is a delightful yet profound philosophical and poetic examination of water, of the fish that live within it, the nature that surrounds it and how human life is intrinsically linked to its flow.
