Anglers Aren’t That Funny: 22 of the Worst Fishing Jokes [PICS]

It may be due to the boredom, or the empty six-pack, but fishing jokes don’t tend to be that funny.

These jokes are pretty bad. But maybe they are so bad that they become good? Two negatives equal a positive, after all.

I’ve met some pretty clever fishermen but when it comes to jokes…anglers aren’t that funny. We can only hope that the real guys are on the water, not writing these bad puns.

Angling jokes are 85 percent a play on words, 10 percent jokes about the angling wife, and five percent about beer. I think that adds up to 100 percent bad.

I’m pretty sure people laugh at these jokes because it’s entertaining to imagine how people came up with such puns and thought they were funny.

I think we need some funnier anglers in this world.
