hi Yellowstone and all rwff fellows users

thanx alot for the help you have give me,and manu others
but i am still not able to land a large fish the biggest 38.4 inch i guess
but have seen you with 70 inch fishes,i have fought fish for over and hour still it wont come in using 50 pd leader and 16 mt rod.
donot know what i am[/b] doing wrong, have tried reeling in when it only green very little at a time even tried fighting it hard as i in real life upto the strain it would take
,would be really helpful if you give us some help here, how long does it take to land a big fish. tried challenge mode and normal, even tried easy level, or if you can please send us a video of you fighting a fish,unless there is something wrong with my installing of the game
thanx alot manoj

Hi Manoj:

Great to see you back on the Forum. It sounds to me like you do not have the fish strength patch in your RWFF install. There was a fish strength problem when people first updated from V.128 to V.131 and then to V.133. Eventually Paul issued a fix for this. Please have a look at the thread and download the fish strength fix. Without this fish strength fix even a medium size fish like the one you are trying to catch might take a long time to play out and reel in. I think if you were to download and unzip this patch into your main RWFF folder it will fix your problem. :P

Please come back if you need more help. We are always here 24/7! Good luck and have fun! :lol:

Regards,

Stanley

Hi Manoj,

Stanley beat me to it, the guru that he is, but I was also compiling a list and instructions for you on how to install/check your install. :lol: Glad he got it worked out for you! I hope that you will continue to be a part of this game and community, as there are many new outings and new species coming out seemingly by the day! And now that you can catch the big fish, you can enjoy virtually all outings available! Good luck, and I hope to see some outing pics and posts from ya!

Hi Manoj:

Glad you got it worked out and catching some big fish again. :P WOW, that is a BIG tarpon, and from the difficult Congo outing too! Congratulations!

We have a very nice community here. Now that you are able to catch the big ones consider joining our Virtual Fly fishing League (VFFL) and participate in some of our tournaments. We have about five left for the 2013 season. Winning is not everything but having fun is our main purpose for these events. Just sent a PM to Roger and sign up, it is free!

Hope to see more of you and your catches on our Forum in the near future! :lol:

Regards,

Stanley

hi Wyldechylde77/Stanley
for helping me out ,Wyldechylde77 if you can still post your compilation i am sure it will help many other who are stuck like i was till you good men came to the rescue.and would sure help me in some way too,as it might cut down the loading like for the game. plus add custom fly boxes which for some reason i cannot get right, Stanley you will be seeing me in the league soon,as you said it not about winning it about be there with
everyone,as in real fly fishing too the fish start coming when you are enjoying the sport.
