Any angler who has ever been annoyed by an overexcited beginner celebrating every lucky catch or who has ever wished the camera actually did add ten pounds to that freshly caught fish will be in good company here. Fantastic Fishing Funnies finds the absurd in every kind of fanciful fishing scenario. Flyfishers faced with gigantic flies at a big fly sale,” bass fishermen who catch more tires than bass, weekenders crowding into a secret fishing spot discovered on Fishbook,” and fanatical ice fishermen doomed to drill holes with chain saws and hair dryers are all represented. Jonny Hawkins’s humor turns on hilarious wordplay and comical contradictions, celebrating the absurd in mundane situations. The next time your line gets so tangled you think a bird could nest in it or you drop your tackle box over the side of the boat, remember these cartoons and you may just find yourself chuckling instead.
With more than three hundred original, beautifully illustrated, and playfully captioned cartoons, this collection of angling antics is sure to become a classic from syndicated cartoonist Jonny Hawkins. The perfect gift for anyone who has ever laughed at himself or a friend while fishing, Fantastic Fishing Funnies is page after page of laughs.
