Catch and Release – A conservation motion that happens most often right before the local Fish and Game officer stops a boat that has caught over its limit.


1. A curved piece of metal used to catch fish

2. A clever advertisement to entice a fisherman to spend his life savings on a new rod and reel

3. The punch administered by said fisherman’s wife after he spends their life savings (see also: Right Hook, Left      Hook)

Line – Something you give your co-workers when they ask on Monday how your fishing went over the past weekend.

Lure – An object that is semi-enticing to fish, but will drive an angler into such a frenzy that he will charge his credit card to the limit before exiting the tackle shop.

Reel – A weighted object that causes a rod to sink quickly when dropped overboard.

Rod – An attractively painted length of fiberglass that keeps an angler from ever getting too close to a fish.

School – A grouping in which fish are taught to avoid your $29.99 lures and hold out for Spam instead.

Tackle – What your last catch did to you as you reeled him in, just before he wrestled free and jumped back overboard.

Tackle Box – A box-shaped alarmingly like your comprehensive “first aid kit“. The difference is that a tackle box contains many sharp objects, so when you reach in the wrong box blindly to get a Band-Aid, you soon need more than one.


1. The amount of strength a fishing line affords an angler when fighting fish in a specific weight range.

2. A measure of your creativity in blaming “that darn line” for once again losing the fish.
