English term or phrase: Arlesey bomb
Definition from Wikipedia:
An angling weight developed by Richard Walker at the lake in Arlesey. Walker fished for perch in the lake, and very large perch could be caught in the deepest water. The Arlesey Bomb was developed to allow him to cast the long distances required.[1] It is tear-shaped, with a loop at the top to attach the line. Its shape makes it aerodynamic to cast, but unlikely to snag on the river or lake bottom. The incorporation of a swivel also prevented the line getting twisted.

Example sentence(s):
  • I like to keep things simple and one of the simplest bits of kit an angler can use is an Arlesey bomb, although to perceive the Arlesey bomb as just a casting weight is to miss it’s potential. Originally designed for fishing at long range, the aerodynamic shape allows the bomb to fly further and without tumbling in the air. Amateur Angling
  • A whole lobworm is a good, active bait, but two tail sections can be even better, as the broken worms give off attractive natural juices that spread through the water. Fish them on a size 8 hook with a simple running set-up using an Arlesey bomb and a long tail of modern fluorocarbon line. AnglingTimes
