5.0 out of 5 stars Must have if you love the history of fly fishing 1 July 2008
By T. Russo - Published on Amazon.com
Skues was there at the beginning of modern fly fishing and had a major impact on its development. It's a pleasure listening (reading) how he discovered different methods to fish, how he developed his flies, his relationship with his fly rod, and, most important, how he developed nymph fishing. His evident enthusiasm is part of the charm of this book.

The background insights regarding fishing in England during those years and the correspondence with American fly fisherman, make this a wonderful historical read as well.

I can't recommend it enough.

Wonderful introduction to Skuse, his world, and his preeminent place in the history of fly fishing. Ordered a USED copy from the UK and it was so well worth it.

If you've made your way to this title, then you really shouldn't hesitate. It's your loss, frankly...
