Ratings and Reviews
Great simulator, but...
This is a fun and very realistic fly fishing simulator, but it takes far too long to land a fish once hooked without breaking the tippet. In real life a hooked fish tires relatively quickly, but in this game you can easily watch for a half hour while the fish just goes and goes without seemingly tiring at all. Eventually I get tired of waiting and try to bring it in, only to have it break off. It's a major flaw in the game, and because of it I will probably tire of it fairly quickly. I'm a fly fisherman and I know how long it takes to land a certain sized fish with certain tackle, and this simulator is just not realistic in that regard.
Also, don't even think about playing this game unless you are willing to spend $15 to get the full lineup of flies, rods and leaders. To try and play for free will just be an exercise in futility.
This simulator gives you an outstanding selection of water to fish, and the fishing experience is very realistic, but you'll quickly tire of fighting a fish for a half hour that you should be able to land in 5-10 minutes.
Been there and really did that
This is a fun game which includes many different fisheries in many different states. I am very familiar with some of the fisheries (the T it amps River in Colorado being one of them) and I even recognised where the places were where the the settings depict.
I have been unable to fly fish for a number of years now due to the ravages of Multiple Sclerosis, but it’s nice to be able to go to those familiar waters in familiar places and drowned a few flies, even if only virtually.
The graphics in the game are excellent. About the only thing that isn’t realistic is that there aren’t any mosquitos and horseflies trying to chew you up. In my opinion, that’s a good thing.
One can even tie one’s own flies in the game, and I have tied many of the flies we used to tie and use on the Yampa with decent results. They patterns which we have used for four generations going back to the earliest 1900’s and which you can’t buy. They have been productive for us on the Yampa and in that entire area, and they are productive on the game world Yampa too.
I enjoy playing this game and I hope you will too.
It’s a awesome game
The only down fall is the first 2 levels give you the opportunity to catch bigger finish so you can move on to the next level. But there’s like 8 or 10 different levels and only the first 2 place only let you do 2 levels on each witch is fine but they need to let everyone get 2 levels on each sight that way we can see if we like the other levels and if we do then make us pay for the rest of them and not make us pay just for altogether 4 sites it’s not really worth taking a guess and paying for it and end up not liking
