"The only way fishing could be trickier would be if water could catch fire." When it's been one of those days when the fish didn't bite-- except for the one that got away (it was BIG, too!)-- anglers can open this book and find solace. Murphy's Laws reassure fishermen that the problem doesn't lie with them: fate has clearly intervened. Gathered on these pages are underlying precepts for why things go wrong with the rod and the reel, from the ancient rules of fishing to the tenets of technique. Ponder these thoughts: "It takes an awful lot of tackle to lose a single fish; Luck is skill displayed by another angler; and Even the worst fisherman can land a pizza!"
