Details

In his old age, G.E.M. Skues took up his pen one last time to take issue once with those dry fly purists who had bugged him of old. Skues fights back in sixteen fascinating chapters and a double-page spread showing the contents of a trout's stomach - mostly nymphs of course! A colour frontispiece shows fifteen nymph patterns. This, the last of his books to be published in his lifetime, reflects Mr Skues's immense experience as one of the most dedicated of fly fisherman and should not be missed. A high-quality, beautifully produced edition of a scarce and important book.
