Fishing Truths (This is hilarious!)

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by saintmathew, Aug 25, 2004.

  1. Catch and Release -

    A conservation motion that happens most often right before the local Fish and Game officer pulls over a boat that has caught over it's limit.

    Hook -

    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 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, but just before he wrestled free and jumped back overboard.

    Tackle Box -

    A box shaped alarmingly like your comprehensive 'first aid kit'. Only a tackle box contains many sharp objects, so that when you reach in the wrong box blindly to get a Band Aid, you soon find that you need more than one.

    Test -

    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.

    Anchor
    A heavy weight which is intended to hold a boat, if one end of the rope is tied to the boat and the other to the anchor! :eek:
