Hello everyone, I recently got a reply to a question I asked here which said I can use "do some fishing" meaning "try to find out information without asking directly". Now, I'd like to know if the variations below are idiomatic and acceptable in English. 1. You need to obtain information but don't do any fishing [don't do anything to get information indirectly ]; they might get suspicious. 2. Did you do any fishing[ did you do anything to get information indirectly] when you met her? She's very smart. Thank you very much in advance!
