  Pictured above is a 1966 edition

'A TROUT AND SALMON FISHERMAN FOR 75 YEARS' – 1948 1ST edition – 338p – Scribners, NY – This is the first edition of the combining of Hewitt’s 2 earlier books, both now classics. “Telling on the Trout” and “Secrets of the Salmon”. In addition to being a masterful angler, Hewitt was a very interesting individual. He literally was to the manor born, coming from a very wealthy family. He continually experimented with both flies and gear and some of his patterns are still in use today, the Neversink Skater comes to mind. The stories about Hewitt’s unique skill are difficult to believe but were witnessed by many people who owed Hewitt nothing who will attest to the veracity of the tales .For example, with witnesses, Hewitt was sight fishing to a salmon. He made several casts with no take. Due to Hewitt’s reputation as an angler, some of the people began to quietly chuckle. Hewitt thought for a second and announced, I know what the problem is, this fish has only one eye. This made the onlookers laugh out loud. Hewitt made a cast to the other side of the salmon and the fly was taken immediately. Hewitt landed the fish and showed the doubters the one eyed salmon.
