How do you say this in English (US)? ぼうず(坊主/bōzu)

The word "bōzu" is used when you go fishing and catch zero fish. There are various theories as to the origin of the word, but one theory is that it comes from the fact that a monk(bōzu) has zero hair. Is there an equivalent expression to "bōzu" used in English when you fail to catch a single fish?
