For the past few years my favorite thing to read in "Outdoor Life" magazine has been the "Last Laugh" written by Patrick McManus.
Over the years I have collected the majority of his books. If you haven't read them, you definatley need to! Very funny stories about fishing and hunting. Every book has at least a few stories that had tears in my eyes laughing out loud. Even my wife enjoys them, and has read every book I own. She has been driven to tears from his humerous tales as well (although often thinking of comparessins between the writer and me and my fishing buddies..
His stories have graced the pages of "Outdoor Life" for over 25 years, and before that he was in "Field & Stream" magazine for many years.
The next issue (April) of "Outdoor Life" will hold the last installment of "The Last Laugh" as Pat is taking a well deserved retirement. Congratulations to him! His stories will definatley be missed by me and I'm sure all readers. Thank you to Mr. McManus for all the memories you shared and the laughter your readers recieved from them.
