KIRKUS REVIEW

A posthumous book recounting E.D. Hewitt's scientific, unorthodox methods of fishing, his choice of tackle, his knowledge of piscine psychology. It makes controversial, highly argumentative, inflammable reading for the Isaac Walton clan. For his methods, his ideas, practised and observed in underwater photography, are against tradition. Speaking to his brother salmon fishermen, he concentrates on the physical habits of the salmon, gives his first hand experience with the finny fellows, shares the adventures of a well-traveled life, and makes a fishing book of some wonder for the followers of rod and creel. An explosive Must for your rod and reel clubs.
