Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Any angler who has ever been out-fished by a beginner with a twig and some twine or questioned whether bass are smarter than he is will be in good company here. Hilarious Fishing Cartoons pokes fun at every kind of angling absurdity. Tiers struggling to tie microscopic flies, bass fishermen who catch more boots than bass, weekenders loaded down with every gizmo and piece of tackle in the shop, and fanatical, freezing ice fishermen doomed to drill and not grill are all represented. Troy's pen is deft and clever, and his one-liners are truly side-splitting. The next time your line gets so tangled you're ready to curse or quit fishing forever, remember these cartoons and you may just find yourself chuckling instead.

Synopsis:

America has more than 60 million fishermen. And while they may not always catch the fish they' re after, with this hilarious collection of 200 cartoons by the great John Troy, they' ll get the laughs they need. Any angler who has ever been threatened by an unwieldy line cast by an overly zealous fly fisherman; been out-fished by a beginner with a twig and some twine; or begun to question whether bass are smarter than humans will appreciate Troy' s deft pen and clever one-liners. You' ll find yourself chuckling knowingly as you flip through the cartoons, which capture everything from the absurdity of collecting all the latest gizmos to the cunning way in which fish evade every hook.

Synopsis:

The best of fishing humor from America's most beloved sporting cartoonist.
