Synopses & Reviews
In this collection of more than thirty essays, political satirist Jack Ohman explores a wide range of topics about fly fishing — such as falling in, fishing records, getting your kids to fish with you, and how not to tie flies (to name only a few), exploring the obsession with the sport that can drive men and women mad. Generously illustrated with more than fifty new Ohman cartoons.
