Fi'sher. n s. [from fish.] One who is employed in catching fish.
In our fight the three were taken up
By fishermen of Corinth, as we thought:
At length another had seiz'd on us,
And would have rest the fishers of their prey,
Had not they been very slow of sail. Shakes. Comedy of Err.
We know that town is but with fishers fraught,
Where Theseus govern'd and where Plato taught. Sandys.
Lest he should suspect it, draw it from him,
As fishers do the bait, to make him follow it. Denham.
A soldier now he with his coat appears;
A fisher now, his trembling angle bears;
Each shape he varies. Pope.
