They say there are two types of fisherman - those who fish for sport and those who fish for fish. Now it’s time to find out which one are YOU!

Welcome to the wet and wild world of ultimate fishing, where you play as the FISHERMAN! You are the master of the fishing rod, line and lure. With real physics.

FISHERMAN is a spiritual sequel to an old game that many people in Finland remember! It was a game where gnome type of troll just sat fishing for her wife. Or was it an albino hippo? It was so long ago that my memories get hazy... But events set in destiny made this game come back to life in this new form.

This time you don't sit and you are not a troll. You stand up and you are human (kinda) and most importantly - you fish again! With real physic. Randomly generated whoppers. Just like it was always meant to be. Take your time. Fishing is not about skill, it’s not about fast reflexes or polished technique. Fishing is about taking your time, relaxing, catching and hatching rare and exotic fishes and by that slowly progressing towards a new location. Find new fishes, purchase better gear, try new looks and venture to new areas in search of almost legendary fishes, that nobody has ever seen.

What’s New

Version 1.4.1

- We added a CAT to the Fisherman! Go to the Forest Lake to unlock your pet!
- Descriptions for each of the 81 fish! Each one of them was painstakingly studied by Fisherman Advances Ichthyologist Team. It's called FAIT. FAIT team consists of 20 experts and they fished for 3 weeks in a row and categorised all fishes (or “gill-bearing aquatic craniate animals”, as they call them). You can now read their findings and interesting lessons in Fishdex screen! Fun AND educational! If you can make more, please post them to reviews or send us directly! We would like to see more info, for example, about Fishbee behavior and also Night Fish!! Were not sure if its fish or Cephalaspidomorphi.
- Tunes to art (Yes it’s art, not “graphics”. We take our job seriously!)
- “Bugs fixed. Our team is working hard to bring…” Oops, sorry, I forgot this copy paste text. Anyway.. For real: Bugs have been fixed!

Our lead coder wrote a poem for cat. I'm posting it here since it's so beautiful:

“Cat Poem”, by Lead coder

My cat is orange and it's with me every day
It likes fish
So we get him a fish and we put in a cat

I have to admit, I was a bit nervous when writing this because I didn't know how to write cat poetry! And of course there was a lot of frustration to finish this. I really hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

Good game but could use some fixes

So I love the game and I play it all of the time, but some things are that when I am going for new fish sometimes all I can catch is the bee fish, it is extremely fast and if it locks on to you that’s what you are getting, also it sometimes takes forever to catch a fish, I will have 15 seconds left and within 5 seconds it has barely moved, then I will get the extra 10 seconds and I still don’t get it! Also I just recently caught the spike and I went to go hatch it... it takes 300 hours to hatch. I understand 5 or 10 days for such a rare fish but a month (I did the math) is a little excessive. But the game is so addicting and I totally recommend this game.

Great game but has some problems

I absolutely love playing this game I could sit here and play for hours sometimes but sometimes you cook a big fish and you have absolutely no problem of reeling it in but then other times you hook a small fish in the drags it down to the bottom of the lake And you can’t reel the fish up You basically have to sit there for the whole time I wish they could fix this maybe just a little more time could be all and all I would recommend

Good game but still some problems

This is a good game, love the gears and fish and locations in this game. However there are a couple problems. One, there shouldn’t be force pulling the lure when there’s is not a fish on it and rod shouldn’t go up. This force wastes lots of time to get the lure back to you, without a fish on it. Another problem is how when the fish is out of he water, it stills puts pressure on the rod and lure, fish can’t swim in mid air so why is there a force pulling the lure when it is out of water. Another thing is how the hatchers have changed, usually there’s 2 free ones already and several more by watching an ad, but now you have to watch ads for the Hatcher, where did the 2 free hatchers go?
