Anyway we got hooked little bit and bought VR glasses to our PS4. We agreed that it is Christmas present to whole family but mostly Satu and I have been playing. Now when it has been extremely slow winter season, I have had more time to miss fly fishing and summer. And I found myself thinking what if.
There would be fishing game with VR glasses. It would be quite easy to ”make rod” from motion controller, add reel and ”piece” of line that you could use it like a rod- reel combination. It would be possible to make casting training, distance, accuracy and fishing. It would be possible to make it really realistic with casting and how to keep line up, loops etc. Just need to have some programming and specials to tell how it would go in real life. That could be like traininig mode.
In fishing mode you would have rivers and lakes with different kind of fishes. You should select right flies or maybe even tie flies you think you need. It would depend about time of the year etc. Yes I know that there are fishing games where you can do these things but… (remember everything before but is a lie). On those you use mouse or some other controller to handle the rod, or it is something like just aim and hit button.
This game would take you as close real thing as possible. With VR glasses surrounding would be more realistic and fishing would be ”real”. You could wade in the rivers and all that kind of things. I think it could be really interesting game. It wouldn’t beat the real thing but during this Covid shit it would be something what could keep you alive. And for me these long winters would be shorter ones. Beside you could do casting training inside.
Have a nice weekend and go fishing for real if you can

Ps. If someone will make this game I want free copy. By the way roof is ready in shed.
