"A Fine Line"
(From Chapter, "Coping with Lure Separation Anxiety")
"Losing a lure to a fish
is also the way it is suppose to be. The big one should always get away.
And the one that got away was always a big one. That lure died with its
boots on. Or a chartreuse skirt, anyway."
A collection of articles, columns, posts, and stories is now available as an ebook: "Just Keep Reeling."
“I'm going to leave the field of outdoor humor writing to you. I'm sure it will be in good hands.”
Patrick McManus, author of many books including his latest, THE HORSE IN MY GARAGE
great thing about Andy Whitcomb is he sees things about fishing we tend
to overlook- his "outside of the box" style is what makes him so
special as a writer. True breath of fresh air!!!!"
Mark Zona, TV Personality, Host of “Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show.”
"Andy Whitcomb has a clever way of looking at seemingly mundane subjects and giving them an interesting spin. His talents as a storyteller have made him one of my favorite writers. I eagerly anticipate every funny and heart-warming tale."
Keith “Catfish” Sutton, author of several books including “The Crappie Fishing Handbook” and “Out There Fishing”)
“Andy Whitcomb knows the three Fs: fishing, family, and fun. His columns for Oklahoma Today combined all three in ways that made us, and our readers, smile every time.”
Steffie Corcoran, Editor, Oklahoma Today Magazine
"I think you are probably the best columnist we've had. And definitely the most funny."
