Fly fishing jokes

Two fly fisherman are fishing on Penns creek during the Green Drake hatch. They are hammering trout left and right. Big browns and rainbows are being brought to hand every other cast. Just then a small funeral percession of boats is coming down through the stream.

The one fly fisherman just then gets the biggest fish of the day on his rod, before he can get his fly out of the water and let the percession pass. he immediately snaps the line on the monster brown, takes his hat of, bows his head and says a prayer.

After the percession continues the other fisherman says, "Man I gotta tell ya, that was the most respectful and best display of sportsmanship I have ever seen. You are a good man."

The other fisherman says, "Well I guess, I was married to her for 30 years"

Re: Fly fishing jokes

Not that it matters, but the original joke has the funeral percession crossing the stream on a bridge near the anglers. That makes more sense.

I can be contacted at [email protected].

Re: Fly fishing jokes

I heard this as a deer hunting joke as well. Just spun it the other way, never heard the trout fishing version.

Thanks for the clarification.

Re: Fly fishing jokes

Were they fishing dry flies or nymphs? You should be more specific because from what I've been told, it matters a great deal whether you fish dry flies or nymphs.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Re: Fly fishing jokes

"I look into... my fly box, and think about all the elements I should consider in choosing the perfect fly: water temperature, what stage of development the bugs are in, what the fish are eating right now. Then I remember what a guide told me: 'Ninety percent of what a trout eats is brown and fuzzy and about five-eighths of an inch long." Allison Moir
