Fish Game

Hardly a day goes by now that a kid doesn't pick up an electronic fishingoldcard.jpg (7508 bytes) game, "The times they are a changing". It used to be when every kid that came into the shop would play with the sinkers or spin the handles on the big International reels, pick up marlin lures, play with the tuna feathers or skirts and comment about the big one that got away. Not today though, more and more the first thing these kids of today see is the electronic sport fishing games which simulate everything from hooking and landing a 450lb blue marlin off the coast of Cabo San Lucas with a rigged squid to catching several 2.5 lb. bass in a cove off the west bank on a chartreuse spinner bait at 15ft. ingame 2.gif (7002 bytes) dirty water on a windy day. With an electronic menu these fresh or salt water pretend anglers choose from the types of lures or rigged baits, cast or let out line to the desired depths of water to be fished or trolled at. Fish fighting skills are judged by pumping the fish in without breaking off the line or losing the fish, drags have to be adjusted for bigger fish and scores are rated and tournament games can be recorded. Not only is the younger generation using these hand held games but you see them everywhere, on airlines, in tackle boxes and in bathrooms! It's a sign of the times. A fisherman's gift if there ever was one.
