Riassunto: Edward R. Hewitt was one of the twentieth century's legendary fly-fishing influences. This is the distillation of his lifetime of angling expertise in America, Great Britain, Ireland, and elsewhere. Although it is based on Hewitt's two earlier classics, Telling on the Trout and Secrets of the Salmon, this book is no mere recapitulation of earlier material. Here, in his breezy, discursive style, the author gives the summation of this unequalled knowledge of angling, drawing from the backlog of his vast experience. Hewitt approached angling as a science as well as a sport?he studied the psychology of the fish as well as the fisherman, and developed his methods with the fish's weaknesses foremost in mind. The result, embodied in this book, is a highly successful philosophy of angling which any fisherman today would recognize and value.
L'autore: Edward Hewitt was born in 1866 and spent his early years in New Jersey - mostly at the family summer home on the Ringwood River where he first learned to fly-fish. Before he was twenty years old he and his brother were operating a sizeable trout hatchery. After university and then marriage in 1892, he made numerous trips to Europe where he fished extensively in England and Scotland as well as France and Germany. This was at the critical time of the codifying of fly-fishing theory and practice by F.M. Halford et al. He took the knowledge back with him to the United States. In 1918 he bought 4-1/2 miles of the world-famous Neversink River Valley in New York State where he established a summer home and a trout hatchery. Edward R. Hewitt authored several angling titles but two stand out as enduring classics - Telling on the Trout (1926) which approached the subject of angling for trout from the trout's viewpoint and Secrets of the Salmon (1922) in which he shared with an astonished angling world his single-handed development of dry-fly fishing for salmon.
