 "A guide boat carrying publishing executive Neil Soper and grocery wholesaler Wing Chu struck a deadhead in the Arran Rapids while travelling at a fast clip. Soper was thrown into the water and luckily landed on his back. His floater jacket saved his life.

 He had 13 pins inserted in a badly broken right leg at Campbell River. After a week he was transferred to UBC Hospital. He'll be a long time recovering."


"Fishing, an endless succession of chance happenings, serves nicely as an allegory for life. One minute Neil Soper's spirits were soaring with the eagles as his boat knifed through the water and in the next he was a couple of breaths away from dying."
