Author(s): G. E. M. Skues
Attorney G. M. Skues drew upon his vast experience as a recreational fisherman to write this masterpiece of the fly fishing genre, in which he established sunken flies as essential tools for the well-equipped angler. Originally published in 1921, this seminal book retains its relevance in a world in which the quiet pleasures of river fishing remain unchanged.
G. M. Skues (1858 - 1949) was a partner at the Powell, Skues and Graham Smith law firm for 45 years. An avid fly fisherman, he is regarded as the inventor of modern-day nymph fishing, and his 1921 book remains a seminal work on the subject.
