A beloved collection of humorous, fictional essays about hunting and fishing with the irascible "ole man," this book was originally published by Maine Outdoor Publications and circulated to a small, but dedicated, audience. The Islandport edition features brand-new material and—for the first time—introduces the ole man and the narrator co-pilot to the general public. In stories like "Before You Bust a Cap" and "Rain Ain’t Nothin’ but Water," the ole man and company find themselves in plenty of pickles that require ingenuity, humor, outdoor know-how, and a lot of patience to endure. The latest in Islandport’s signature lineup of entertaining and informative outdoor titles, Huntin’ and Fishin with the Ole Man is sure to become a staple at camp or in the canoe, and come in handy when the snows come or the fish won’t bite. Just don’t laugh too hard or you may flip your boat.
