Kung Fu Carp Fishing


...An absolutely hilarious guide to fishing, perhaps useful for fishermen, definitely entertaining to everyone. I fully recommend this. Now I'm going to read it again. ...

Well, Kung Fu Carp Fishing certainly caught this reader. Delightfully tongue in cheek and laugh out loud funny in places, this is a not too serious guide to fly fishing for carp, based on the book of five rings. It had me in stitches. From the moment he mentions standing in a lake holding a metal rod and not noticing there was a thunderstorm going on I was hooked.

It includes instruction lists for equipment and perhaps enough technique advice to start people fishing. However it also includes instructions for Kung-fu techniques to use on people who laugh at you for fly-fishing for carp, so how serious this guidance is, I’m not sure and I don’t care. It also includes information for catch and release techniques and making sure the fish recovers.

An absolutely hilarious guide to fishing, perhaps useful for fishermen, definitely entertaining to everyone. I fully recommend this. Now I’m going to read it again.

  • FOSSILS: Viagra, snuff, and Rock n Roll
    A great concept and setup, but some issues with writing
  • The Day I Washed My Face in the Toilet
    Family chaos? Oh yes. A good book for teenagers? Again yes, although it would probably appeal to YA readers of any age, as the older ones can look back and laugh.
  • How not to...
    Good advice delivered through biting sarcasm, quips, and some moments that brought a smile or chuckle? Its a very good read, and... well, I would recommend it.
