BOISE, Idaho - Patrick F. McManus, a prolific writer best known for his humour columns in fishing and hunting magazines who also wrote mystery novels and one-man comedy plays, has died. He was 84.

McManus' business partner Tim Behrens said Friday that McManus died Wednesday evening at a nursing facility in Spokane, Washington, where he had been in declining health. Behrens performed the one-man plays.

McManus was Born in Sandpoint, Idaho, on Aug. 25, 1933.

He wrote monthly humour columns for more than three decades for the popular magazines Field & Stream and Outdoor Life.

He also wrote a series of mystery novels with a darker form of humour than his outdoor writing.
