The obscure word of the week is guddle

look_it_up_T httpwww.clipartpal.comclipart_pdeducationdictionary_10586.htmlThis week’s really obscure English word is guddle.

It is from Scotland refers to a technique for fishing for trout with the hands, in which the fisher carefully reaches down to a fish in a shallow pond or stream without disturbing or alerting it (‘guddling’ it) and then flips it to the bank. Your challenge? Write a sentence (or two) in the comments using this word.
