G.E.M. SKUES: THE WAY OF A MAN WITH A TROUT. By T. Donald Overfield.
1977 1st edition. 8vo (143 x 223mm). Pp288. B/w photographs, map. Brown boards, spine titled in senior angler of his day. His mastery of the art of fly-fishing for trout was based on acute observation and the application of sound common sense, and the invaluable results of his experience became available in four outstanding books published between 1910 and 1939". In this book, Donald Overfield has gathered together seventy-one articles and thirty letters by Skues that have previously appeared in The Flyfisher's Club Journal but never in book form. To complement these articles Overfield has included a brief biography of the man, chapters on his published fly patterns, his rod (the 'World's Best Rod'), the nymph controversy and an assessment of the immense contribution that Skues made to flyfishing. A very good and important book on one of the most important men in the history of flyfishing.
