Description


"Jack Ohman takes a sport that is already intrinsically hilarious and makes it even funnier." --Ted Leeson Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist (and fanatical fly fisher) Jack Ohman takes a lighthearted look at one of America's favorite pastimes. With over 50 of his black and white cartoons--newly colorized--Ohman sets his hooks into topics such as: Gear. "Getting into cold waders in the morning is like trying to forcibly dress a seal in a spandex leotard." The Compleat Angler, Revised. "The Troute knew not my Brande Names and Boron Rod and power Butt and engraved reele, and scarce I could place blame on him." Selecting the Proper Fly. "While we dodder about on the hard ground, muttering nonsense about line weights and drag ratios, trout are swimming contentedly, just waiting to make us look even dumber than we already are. Trout fishermen are always paranoid about secret trout plots." With topics ranging from the differences between Western and Eastern anglers and selecting the proper fly to fly fishing history, this reprint of a modern fly fishing classic, first published in 1988, will continue to entertain a new generation of anglers bitten by the fly fishing bug.

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**
