PODCAST: A Troutbitten Glossary — S9, Ep10

by | Dec 24, 2023 | 11 comments

 The Troutbitten Podcast is available everywhere that you listen to your podcasts.

** Note **  The Podcast Player, along with links to your favorite players is below.

For this final episode of Season Ten and of 2023, we wanted  to have some fun. In this episode we walked through a bunch of Troutbitten . . . terms, words, sayings, phrases . . . and talked about what all of this means. Let’s call it a Troutbitten glossary.

If you’re lucky enough to have your own group of long-time fishing friends, then I’m sure you have your own phrases too — your own idioms and ways of talking about things. It’s all a lot of fun.

Long-time listeners understand what it means when Austin says he could have caught a lot more trout — if he really wanted to. Most of you also understand what it means to play bartender for a friend, and you know how many inches a trout should be to fall under the Troutbitten classification, Whiskey.

Our lingo is part of the Troutbitten culture. Here we go . . .

Troutbitten on the WadeOutThere Podcast

Troutbitten on the WadeOutThere Podcast

I had the pleasure of talking shop with Jason Shemchuk of the WadeOutThere podcast. It’s a tactical but casual conversation that digs deep. I probably talked too fast and too often, and I got excited about the material, as usual. But those who know me will tell you that this is about as much DOM as there is anywhere on tape. That’s a tribute to Jason, because he’s easy to talk with and steers an interview with grace . . .

Leaders in the Troutbitten Shop

Leaders in the Troutbitten Shop

Troutbitten leaders are now available in the Troutbitten Shop. These are hand tied leaders in four varieties: Harvey Dry Leader, Standard Mono Rig, Thin Mono Rig, and Micro-Thin Mono Rig. Standard Sighters are also available, and they include a Backing Barrel. The Full Mono Rig Kit contains each of the three Mono Rig leaders.

All Troutbitten leaders come on a three-inch spool, making long leader changes a breeze.

The Troutbitten Shop Launches: Tees, Hoodies, Hats, Stickers and Canvas Prints

The Troutbitten Shop Launches: Tees, Hoodies, Hats, Stickers and Canvas Prints

Today marks the completion of a significant Troutbitten project. After a full year in development, the Troutbitten Shop has launched. For sure, this is the conclusion of one phase and the beginning of another, as I’ll continue to add designs and products for the shop in the coming seasons.

The Troutbitten Shop starts with tees, hoodies, hats, stickers and canvas prints. These items feature logos and original designs, artfully printed on high end materials. I took no shortcuts.

Troutbitten has grown from the seeds of your support. Troutbitten readers have made all of this possible, and I’m thankful to be part of a community of anglers who live a life on the water.

I invite you to look around the shop a bit. I’m proud of what is here, and I’m excited for the future.

Here’s a quick rundown of the shop parts . . .

Troutbitten Featured in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette

Troutbitten Featured in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette

My friend, Steve, texted me yesterday to ask if I knew that my name was in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette sports section. Since my mediocre Little League baseball career ended at twelve years old, I’d figured that my chances at making the sports section of any paper were shot. But to my surprise, there it was, both online and printed in the Sunday paper.

And I have to admit that it makes me smile. I grew up reading the PPG, and I still do. As a home grown western Pennsylvania boy, I follow my Steelers, Penguins and Pirates with devotion.

  1. For some reason it’s always been “Yahtzee!” on hook up. Great pod fellas. Look forward to all those to come in the new year.

  2. That was a fun cast. Next year you should post a video of the feats of strength to your Youtube page.

    Conquer is a new one for me. I have done this on foot to more than a few assholes determined to high hole me.

    Thanks for the content!

  3. Enjoyed the Podcast guys! Some fishing terms my friends and I have used throughout years of fishing. A hook up-Fish On or Bingo. A small fish-a dink. I have a Dink on the end of my line. For big fish-I have Melvin on the end of my line. A fish that gets off during the fight- A lost opportunity. My friends and I are more interested in hookups than fish brought to the net. In fact, we rarely net a fish at all unless we are taking a photo. We just reach down and remove the barbless fly and send the fish on its way. More anglers should do this instead of netting a fish. Another term I have used throughout my life is- the fishing is good but the catching is poor. Of course, a poor day of fishing is always better than a great day at the office.

  4. When we have a bad day of re-tying our rigs we like to say “We’re knitting a lot” or asking our friend if they’re knitting a sweater if they take a long time tying. If we keep hooking a lot of weeds or green “stuff” we’re “catching a lot of lettuce” today.

    Great podcast and love the Sloop addition. Love the friendly banter you guys have together.

  5. “Hey Now” was the catch phrase of Jeffrey Tambor’s character Hank on the Larry Shandling show. Howard Stern was a big fan of the show and immediately took to repeating it on his show.

  6. I laughed at the things you all say when a fish is on. My fishin buddy alway whoops it up and yells “he’s a fighter!”, even when he has a dinky 6 incher on. For me it’s always been “come to papa!”.

  7. My hookup phrase:
    Sweet Fancy Moses!
