Daryl Crimp



Daryl Crimp is New Zealand’s foremost fishing humorist and cartoonist.


Since his humour column first graced the pages of new Zealand Fishing News in the early ‘90s, Crimpy has been regularly injecting liberal doses of mirth and mayhem into the lives of young and cold alike.


Crimpy writes from the Funny Bone, but what makes his stories more special is that all the events actually took place.  An editor once commented, “Crimpy’s stories are 90% true… I just never know what 10% is made up!”


Daryl Crimp’s ‘WHOPPER’ is not an autobiography, but a slice of life’s magic moments.  Through its pages Crimpy rekindles the art of spinning a good yarn, with a twist at every turn.


Whether an avid angler, or one who just likes to laugh from the belly, Daryl Crimp’s ‘WHOPPER’ deserves a place on your bedside table.
