fishing neck

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
The surface on which a fishing tool engages when retrieving tubing, tools or equipment stuck or lost in a wellbore. Tools and equipment that are temporarily installed in a wellbore are generally equipped with a specific fishing-neck profile to enable the running and retrieval tools to reliably engage and release.
