    Edward Ringwood Hewitt (1866-1957) is one of the great figures of 20th century angling. He wrote voluminously on trout and salmon fishing, was an early exponent of dry fly fishing for salmon, and was also one of the first to help promote catch-and-release fishing. It is currently believed that Hewitt built 22 fly reels; at present, only seven Hewitt reels are known to exist, including this one once owned by Maxine Atherton, wife of artist and author John Atherton.
