Great gift for the fisherman in your life. Definitions include the real meaning of the word and several humorous alternative meanings. Example: Croaker, Grouper, Snapper is defined as 1. Informal names for three groups of salt-water game fish. 2. Informal names for the three basic types of anglers: the noisy croakers, who cough and clear their throats when absolute silence is essential; the overly convivial groupers, who borrow your lures, sample your lunch, and help you lose fish during netting; and the mean spirited snappers, who respond to an angler's casual remark about the weather with a pointed request that he go smoke a fish.
