    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 live 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 coworkers 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.
