Publishing news: Matthew Dickerson’s newest work of narrative non-fiction about trout, fly-fishing, and ecology is now in print!  Trout in the Desert: On Fly Fishing, Human Habits, and the Cold Waters of the Arid Southwest was published in the Fall of 2015 by Wings Press (San Antonio)

trout-desert “If Matthew Dickerson’s paean to the cold waters and elusive fish of the American southwest were not so beautifully rendered you might be tempted to put it down, get out your rod, and step into the nearest stream. But Trout In The Desert will stop you in your tracks. It is not only a splendid testament to one man’s passion, but an enchanting evocation of a landscape’s unfolding secrets.” —Sue Halpern, regular contributor to The New Yorker, author of A Dog Walks Into a Nursing Home: Lessons in the Good Life from an Unlikely Teacher
