I Fish; Therefore, I Am: And Other Observations; Three Bestselling Works Complete in One Volume; A Fine and Pleasant Misery, Never Sniff a Gift Fish, They Shoot Canoes, Don't They? - Patrick F. McManus This omnibus is three collections of Mr. McManus's stories in one volume. A longtime writer for Field and Stream, Mr. McManus writes some of the funniest stories about outdoor life that I've ever come across. Today was a horrible day, and as I was mooching around the house in a funk, it occurred to me to haul this one off the shelf and elevate my mood.

The very first time I read the piece "A Fine and Pleasant Misery," I made the mistake of doing so in the bathtub, and I laughed so hard I almost drowned. Tonight, the same essay and others made me laugh when I desperately needed to do so.

Thanks, Pat.
