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!
