Breakoff

A term of defeat and excitement for a fly angler.  It describes the event of hooking a fish and then having that fish break your tippet or leader. Usually a break off results from an unusually strong or big fish, an undersized tippet or leader, or a poorly tied knot, but can also be caused by careless fighting of the fish.
