    "I kinda agree with the part that one guy said about the devs not caring about the players, but I disagree when he said that it's full of bugs because they've been fixed now. Still though, it might have the potential to be a top game if the devs would just listen to its playerbase"


The practice of fishing can be traced way back to the beginning of the Upper Paleolithic period for about 40,000 years ago. In Africa, by 200,000 BC Neanderthals were already fishing. It is their primary source of food for trade, selling, or for their families. The development of basketry and knitting was also influenced by fishing because back in the days, they use it as fish traps and fishing nets to catch large quantities of fish. Now, fishing is also done for recreational purposes. During the post-English Civil War, recreational fishing took a great leap forward.

This new interest for fishing left a mark on books and treatises written at that time. In 1655, Charles Kirby improved the design of fishing hooks and that is the same design that we use for fishing today. He also invented another design called the Kirby Bend with a distinctive hook with offset point which is also still commonly used today. In the 18th century, running rings began to appear with the fishing rods that gave the anglers greater control with the cast line. Now, fishing as a recreational activity is strongly established and called sports fishing, mostly as a form of competition or for pleasure.

    "Fishing Planet is a relaxing, immersive experience that is ultimately unhinged by microtransactions. Avoid this game unless you want to keep dumping money into it to progress. It's a shame because the game mechanics have the potential to make it the best fishing experience on Steam, otherwise."

    "Cool game and all and it has the fishing feature to it, but it's not what I'm really looking for. I think the people who come here are looking for fishing simulators, not farming games where a fishing factor is present. Still a decent game though, tried it out because it made me curious."
