: What is the origin of the phrase- 'deadliest catch'? I know its origin is far before the television show. Anyone know how far back it goes?

The Deadliest Game was the title of an episode of the TV show Bonanza in 1965. That phrase may have derived from the "Seven Deadly Sins" which were listed in the year 590 AD (CE) by Pope Gregory. The question must have arisen over the centuries as to which sin is the deadliest.
