Landing fish problem

Postby nymphaholic » Sun Sep 23, 2007 1:37 am

I just downloaded and installed the game and it looks great. My problem is that I can't seem to land any fish. I can only get them to the point where the fish on the screen is about 3 inches above the blue line that is at the bottom of the screen. This is also the point where the line is reeled in to the leader at the rod tip. No matter what I do I can't get past that point. Am I over looking something or is it a glitch. :(

Hi nymphaholic :)

Welcome at our community.

If you reel the line up to the leader, you should be able to get the fish by moving the rodtip downwards while reeling in and then moving the rod carefuly backwards behind you. Of course, if you catch a big fish, it could required to adjust the reel-brake.

Hope to see you at one of the next contests. :)

Regards Peter

Thanks for the suggestions. The problem was trying to catch steelhead on a 5 pound leader and not bringing the rod back far enough.
