This fishing sim is just as chill, but less messy, than the real thing

I used to go fishing when I was a kid. I once caught a pike and I’m still haunted by the memory of having to batter its head against a rock to kill it. But since then my adult life has been entirely free of angling, and now I mostly just stick to fish fingers. Which is why I decided, rather than brutalise another pike, I would play a bit of The Fisherman: Fishing Planet, a new sim from Bigben Interactive instead.

I’m not really interested in the intricacies of fishing. I prefer the streamlined version of the sport you find as a minigame in other games. We picked some of our favourites earlier this year. The Fisherman, however, is a proper simulator, with all manner of lures, rods, and techniques to master. You can try float fishing, spinning, bottom fishing, and even a spot of trolling.
