George Skues was a public school pupil at Winchester in Hampshire. Born in 1858, he is as remote to most of us as Izaak Walton. As a schoolboy, he fished the river Itchen and became as obsessed with trout fishing as any other man before or since. Following a career as a London solicitor, he would make a pilgrimage back the Itchen almost every weekend. George Skues was - in his own epoch - a revolutionary as radical as Che Guevara, but rather more mischievous. On behalf of everybody who fishes for trout with a sunken line, he fought a great battle over many years with orthodox fly fishing practise - the dry fly. In winning this battle for us, George Skues began a landslide in freshwater entomology and championed a whole new method of fishing.

This course is especially designed for use in the upper grades of elementary schools, and for the first work in science in Junior High Schools. Its purpose is to stimulate interest in the simple scientific problems found in daily life, to train toward a correct understanding and truthful interpretation of common objects and phenomena, and to arouse some appreciation of the intimate relation that exists, on the one hand, between science and health, and, on the other, between science and economic prosperity.
