Details

"Following the death of G.E.M. Skues on 9th August 1949, a series of fly-tying articles which had originally appeared in the Fishing Gazette were published under the title, Silk, Fur and Feather: The Trout-Fly Dresser's Year by "V.C"., the initials of Skues' pen name "Val Conson". A concise list of feathers used in fly dressings is included as an addition. The Flyfisher's Classic Library has commissioned new reference drawings from Robin Armstrong. This fine handbook by Skues, the master fly-dresser of imitative patterns, is a rare treasure, almost unobtainable in the original edition."
