Fish Priest

Fish Priest: A club used to kill a fish after it has been caught. This is the Britsh term; the American term is fish whacker. Fishing supply houses sell fancy fish priests made from hard woods and brass.
Within seconds, one of the Yemeni brothers erupting from the store, a sawed off fish priest cocked over his left shoulder like a baseball bat.
