Hello NE,

I am a new member and a new angler. GREAT SITE!!!

Is there an "angler's dictionary" somewhere here? I'd like to know what a "pinhooker" is, or what "backing off" a fish mean and so forth. I reallize these are totally beginner type questions, but that's what I am right now. I kind of feel embarrased to ask these type of questions in the regular forums - most people seem to be quite advanced here. I've been reading the older posts and other sites - but sometimes a good old dictionary seems like the best place for a quick definition of an angling term I don't understand.

Thanks and keep up the great work!

I made a mistake...

I should have created the topic as "angler dictionary" rather than "what's a pinhooker". Just a newbie mistake.
