Noknots,

Without "looking them up" which you could do but wouldn't give you the "flavor" you are looking for here is a rundown.

A lunker = specimen

A flyer = to take a chance (i.e. I'll take a flyer on using HNV baiting.)

Nailed = caught in an "act" (i.e. lying - not a serious offence)

Pull back = re-assessment of a particular position

Feather = this one I'd have to hear in context. I cannot think of an instance right now where "feather" would be a verb or action.

wafter = someone who changes his mind or refuses to express an opinion (i.e. I could say, "HNV might work but might not work)

I think feather refers to feathering a cast. Slowing down your line towards the end of the cast to help your rig land properly.

Keep guessing Guys!

Feather is indeed; to feather the cast, not just for Carp, but all angling!

Lunker= a whacker or big Carp

Nailed= well hooked

Flyer= try again, as you missed the clue :rolleyes:

just scrolling through this topic, and its really good, cant believe that we talk so differently... now how about some cockney rhyming slang..lol

WOW!

If we keep this up, pretty soon all of the British and US people will be able to communicate! yourock

Seriously,

I'm glad a lot of these are here because now, like Carpazoid says, I have something to refer to.

I heard an Australian gent state that the Americans and British are two cultures separated by a common language.

I greatly appreciate the dictionary. It helps me understand what is being said.

England: "Talley Ho!"

America: "There goes the #$$%%^&*!"

Flyer - fast take, also known as a 'screamer' or a 'one toner'

Wafter - a neutrally balanced bait. In boilie terms a 50/50 mix using either cork dust or a pop up mix to create a bait that has neutral buoyancy. The reason behind this bait is that some anglers think it ensures the carp takes the bait further back in to the mouth cavity and will therefore increase the chance of hooking

Here is my American to Redneck dictionary:

PB: Peanut Butter. What it has to do with carp fishing I'll never know.

Braid: What happens to your lines when you get a double and the fish both get tangled up with your neighbors lines.

Bite Alarm: I don't know about you, but it's what I think about every time my alarm clock goes off at 6:00 in the morning. After I hit the SNOOZE button, I lay in bed afterward waiting for the backdrop.

Swim: What you do when you forget to set the baitrunner on your reel.

PVA: What carp fishermen wish women's bikinis were made of.

Peg: What you forgot to use as you see your bivvy fly overhead during a storm.

Spod: Both my wife and girlfriend giggled when I showed them a picture of one. Go figure.

Buff: What you're in when your bite alarm unexpectantly goes off at 2:00 in the morning during an all-nighter.

Session: What court is in when you're standing in front of a judge because you got caught at 2:00 in the morning in the "buff".

PVA: Stands for "Pretty Volatile Additive". What you add to your opponents coffee to keep him bolting to the toilet, unable to fish.

Screaming Runs: What your opponent gets when the "PVA" kicks in.

Bolt Rig: What you put between two trees about knee high to trip up your opponent when the PVA you gave him kicks in at 2:00 in the morning and he bolts for the toilet with "screaming runs".

Marker Float: What you use to mark where the bodies are sunk.

Nut Drill: What the big end of your rod feels like when you're fighting a 40 pound buff.

Hair Stops: The area on your head that shows how many years you've been wasting away watching your Delkims.

Quiver: What the carp in the lake do when Neil and I walk up to the bank.

Hookbait: What carp fishermen use to lure prostitutes to the lake.

Stiff Rig: It's actually a type of fishing rig. Get your mind out of the gutter.

Swingers: Contestants that during a tournament swap fishing partners.

Hangers: Swingers that are caught in the act.

PVA Fishnet: See "PVA" above.

We British old timers used to make bait out of peanut butter. Hell, we used to make bait out of our lunchtime sandwich fillings - you never went home with leftovers!
