Jon Margolis, columnist for the Chicago Tribune, and Jeff MacNelly, Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of the syndicated cartoon "Shoe", dearly love fly-fishing, but they don't take it too seriously. Fly-fishing is supposed to be fun, and so is this book. The text is conversational, and the 32 illustrations are funny yet helpful.
