Nita's man, Andy here. Anderson's "Curtis Creek Manifesto" is the best fly fishing primer ever. I just gave my bro a copy. Still in print. Google his name to read an excellent story on his life .

Here's a couple of excerpts from the Manifesto. In the back he gives a nod to fishing buds Lloyd Price and Yvon Chouinard.

A classic from E. Lovejoy Wolfinger III from Mountain 30 1973.

I'm lucky enough to have a copy of "The Climbing Cartoons of Sheridan Anderson" and of "Baron von Mabel's Backpacking", both of which are classics.

I also have a complete collection of Tami Knight's books and booklets, all thoughtfully autographed/defaced by the author.

Climbing humour is indeed a lovely subject. I believe Tami likens it to shooting a barn door with a shotgun - an easy target.

The books by G.F. Dutton, though not illustrated, are also wonderful gentle satires of our odd world.

Anyone have the one panel cartoon with the caption: "Do you have to chalk up for everything?"

Bump. Just found this thread. I'd posted this cartoon of Philo's on the More Blanyon Stories thread, but it seems like it belongs here. I think it's priceless.

Anybody remember (and/or can post) that cartoon of Sheridan Anderson's with the big, ape-looking guy with knuckles dragging on the ground carrying a single huge cam? Always got a kick out of that one. I can't draw worth a damn but I always thought that being a cartoonist would be one of the best jobs you could have.

There was a good one in one of the magazines maybe mid 90s,
I don't even know the artist.
Zaftig woman on a ledge, belaying, rope goes up out of sight.
She's wearing a cat-print hotpants suit, high heel go go boots, big hair...

Thought balloon something like "What's taking him so long? This is only
10d! If I have to lead this pitch TOO?!?!"
