A guy who repeatedly reels a woman in and then throws her back because he's scared shitless of commitment. The fisherman flys his line, hooks the fish and then sets her free, only to fly his line again in the hopes of catching another. Akin to the jerk, a fisherman enjoys the conquest but can't handle the prize.
