look up any word, like ebola-head:
When you try to find matching socks in the dryer. Oftentimes you find a sock you like but finding it's mate can take a long time of dipping in to the batch and fishing out less liked ones.
"Sorry I'm late for work. I couldn't catch a thing sock fishing."

"Honey, I'm starting more wash because the sock fishing pool has dried up."
