When tackling a game like Euro Fishing, it’s too easy to get hooked on puns. I don’t want to carp on about it, but reeling people in with lines about “big rods” is just swimming against the current of creativity. So I’m making it off-fishial. No piscine puns here.
In this thrilling video, you will see half an hour of Euro Fishing in all its glory. The eternal struggle of man against fish. Nature versus rudimentary nature-catching technology. Me … against correct line-casting technique.
It’s a look at two of the game’s five lake-based levels, plus a very poor attempt at one of the ‘challenge’ mini-games as a kind of mid-point interlude. I think my problem there is that I was still using the very first (and rather short) fishing rod/line set-up. So I didn’t stand much of a chance, really.
