"swim" Definition

  1. “a good SWIM,” a good run of luck, a long time out of the policeman’s clutches.—_Thieves’ term._ Among anglers “a good SWIM” is a good pitch for a part where fish are plentiful—that is, because a lot of fish keeping together are called a SWIM. Thus one who is in luck, is well connected, or is doing a good business, is said to be in a good SWIM.
