Americans use many expressions about fish and fishing.For example,if someone sounds fishy,it may not be true. Sometimes i feel like a fish out of water when i go to a party and everyone but me is doing the latest dance. When i asked my friend if she liked my new dress, i would like her to say something nice, in other words, i am fishing for a compliment.you might tell someone to cut bait if he repeatedly attemped to do something he is unable to do.Sometimes a lawyer will ask a witness many questions in an effort to discover the fact of a court case. This is called going on a fish expedition.Some expressions involve different kinds of fish. Information that is used to draw attention away from the real fact of the situation is called a red herring.If he wants to express a feeling of surprise,you might cry "holy mackerel",although we do not know why a mackerel is holy.
