Fi'sherman. n.s. [fisher and man.] One whose employment and livelihood is to catch fish.
And dizzy 'tis to cast one's eyes so low!
The fishermen that walk upon the beach
Appear like mice. Shakespeare's King Lear.
At length two monsters of unequal size,
Hard by the shore, a fisherman espies. Waller.
Do scales and fins bear price to this excess?
You might have bought the fisherman for less. Dryd. Juven.
