Your Guide to all those unknown fishing terms:
A quiver tip (sometimes referred to simply as a 'quiver') is a fine tip that is spliced or screwed into the end of a rod. Because it is fine, it can bend quite easily and quiver when fish are taking the bait.
Shirt Button Style
A term used when the shot down the line below the float is spaced out equally, so it looks like shirt buttons. This allows the hook bait to drop down through the water more gradually.
A hook that is not attached with an eye/ring. Instead, it has a flat section at the top of the shank that looks like a micro spade.
