Book Description

1 April 1992

Across the country, indeed all around the world, there is a fraternity of men, women and youngsters whose greatest pleasure in life is fishing. They are a jolly bunch. The jokes told in this collection are not told against anglers, but stories told by anglers against themselves.

Let’s face it, we humans are pretty hopeless at outsmarting simple creatures that just swim around in murky water all day long. But there are hundreds of thousands of anglers out there who are compelled to try and prove, perpetually, that they are smarter than fish.

And therein always lies a tale – usually a tall one…or a fishy one…or one about a monster that got away…or one about a lonely wife deserted for an even lonelier riverbank or beach. And they’re all here, in The World’s Best Fishing Jokes – specially for days when the weather’s too bad to go fishing!

Product Description

From the Back Cover

Let’s face it, we humans are pretty hopeless at outsmarting simple creatures that just swim around in murky water all day long. But there are hundreds of thousands of anglers out there who are constantly compelled to try and prove that they are smarter than fish.

The parish priest asked young David, ‘Which Bible story do you like best, my son?’
‘The one about the fellow who just loafs and fishes.’

The family were just off on holiday when the wife reported, ‘The car’s packed, but now all your fishing tackle is in there’s no room left for the children.’
‘Have you left enough food for them?’

‘How did the trip go?’
‘Not much good. We only caught one fish.’
‘What did you do with it?’
‘It was so small we got a couple of other blokes to help us throw it back.’

And therein lies a tale – usually a tall one… or a fishy one… or one about the monster that got away. They’re all here, in 'The World’s Best Fishing Jokes' – ideal for days when the weather’s too bad to go fishing!
