I have to confess here and now that my brain doesn’t seem to be wired for grasping electronic games. Painting intricate watercolours, erecting tents, reading topographic maps, no problem at all, but ask me to get my head around sitting in front of a computer screen or other device and playing imaginary games and I freeze!
So, in the interests of putting together a shortlist of engaging and realistic online fishing games that are worthy of viewing, I’ve done a very basic straw poll amongst some ‘angling gamers’ I know and whittled the selection down to five of the best. I can’t vouch for them, the games that is, but they recommend these games as being challenging and great fun for anglers, young or old who can’t get out of the house or tent and actually go fishing for real, or simply for those that like to play online games, anywhere, anytime.
Let’s Fish is the most popular fishing game in the world, with realistic graphics and fishing action. There’s more than 40 different real-world locations, covering everything from Lake Baikal in Russia to the South Pole, and of course, right here in our own backyard.
