Funny: Patrick McManus
  • From his article "The Angler's Dictionary":
    Split-shot sinker- An angler who suddenly drops into the water while standing with one foot on the dock and the other foot in a drifting boat and holding a ten-horse motor in his arms is known as a split-shot sinker. First he splits, then he sinks like a shot. The split is usually accompanied by a hideous screech, so horrible in fact that other anglers have been known to look up briefly from sorting their tackle boxes.
