[SKUES, G.E.M]"V.C." Silk, Fur and Feather: The Trout-fly Dresser's Year. Beckenham: The Fishing Gazette. 1950.
12mo. Original green limp boards, lettered in gilt to front and spine; pp. 116, text illustrations; small repair to title page, very good.
First edition in book form, variant binding. This series of articles, first published in The Fishing Gazette, were written by Skues under his pen-name Val Conson. Skues died in 1949 and this book was put together partly as a memorial and partly in recognition of the value these articles had for novice fly fishermen.
