|About the Book|
Every angler will be fascinated by the tales of fishing in many waters which Mr. Hewitt tells, and every salmon or trout angler can benefit by reading and rereading this book.Although based on Mr. Hewitts two earlier classics Telling on the Trout (which approached trout fishing from the trouts point of view) and Secrets of the Salmon(which created the sport of dry-fly salmon fishing), this book is no mere recapitulation of earlier material. Here, in breezy, discursive style, Mr. Hewitt has given the summation of his unequalled knowledge of angling, drawing from the backlog of his vast experience and including the latest discoveries of himself and others.Mr. Hewitt has approached angling as a science as well as a sport- he has studied the psychology of the fish as well as the fisherman, and has developed his methods with the fishs weaknesses foremost in his mind. The result, embodied in this book, is a highly successful philosophy of angling which any fisherman would be wise to study. And to illustrate his points, there are countless anecdotes about Mr. Hewitts own experiences on the stream, which cannot fail to delight every fisherman.
