In this collection of more than thirty essays, political satirist Jack Ohman covers 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.
WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
