Hilarious Hunting & Fishing Cartoons

Foreword by Nick Lyons / Illustrated by John Troy

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.

No one understands the challenges and frustrations of the outdoorsman's life like John Troy, and no one makes the maddening business of hunting so riotously funny. Anyone still kicking himself over a missed shot, anyone wishing that his hunting dog had paid more attention in obedience school, or anyone who has ever been confounded by the antics of a pesky squirrel will enjoy this hugely delightful collection. In typical John Troy style, we are treated to one-panel lampoons of shooters who can't hit stuffed animals, bears that beat up hunters, and ducks that make their own decoys. They're funny because they're true. Hilarious Hunting Cartoons will delight both novice and experienced hunters and will make an excellent gift for yourself or a passionate hunter you know.

John Troy's cartoons have appeared in Field & Stream, Sports Afield, Outdoor Life, Audubon, In-Fisherman, Ducks Unlimited Magazine, Fly Fisherman, and dozens of other outdoor publications. He was the creator of "Baxter," the beloved and mischievous hunting dog who was featured in several of his many bestselling cartoon collections. He was the author of Hilarious Fishing Cartoons and Hilarious Hunting Cartoons. John Troy grew up in New Jersey and lived with his wife, Doris, in Dade City, Florida. He is deceased.
