Gone Fishing - 11/15/12 08:07 PM

To honor the generations of Boomers who've fished waters in search of prizes large and small, this puzzle is angling for the names of fish. As simple as shooting fish in a barrel you ask...goodness no, fishing is never easy and you'll find many of these are not common fish for sure. However, given there is wordplay or trickery afoot with some of the fish names, you'll catch them eventually once you take their name's sake into account laugh

Example: This fish has a heavenly body <8> --> starfish

= 1. what fish is known to sit at a loom for hours?
= 2. what fish can be found at a monastery?
= 3. what fish is a big supporter of bird homes?
= 4. what fish supports the cigarette industry?
= 5. what fish can you find up at all hours of the night?
= 6. what fish is close friends of wolf man and Dracula?
= 7. what fish can you find on a throne with wings?
= 8. what fish can be found on a large and heavy motorcycle?
= 9. what fish can be found in the dairy aisle?
= 10. what fish loves to wear diamonds?
