Overview

  • Useful advice from the father of nymph fishing
  • Extraordinary observations of the trout's world
George Edward MacKenzie Skues has been described not only as the father of nymph fishing but as the greatest fly fisher who ever lived. He was also a modest, humorous, and warmly companionable writer. Both beginners and experts find his work accessible, entertaining, and enormously informative.
Skues was that rarest of angling authorities, the iconoclast with a reverential respect for fly-fishing's traditions. A leading student of the sport's history and literature, Skues had a rare gift for sifting through many generations' accumulation of opinion and advice, keeping only what was truly useful and adapting it to the needs of anglers in a rapidly changing world. Skues on Trout showcases one of angling's greatest theorists sharing his hard-won wisdom along his beloved trout streams.
