If you are bored of waiting for fish to take and falling asleep in front of the computer, this means that you have played a bad game! In the Ultimate Fishing Simulator this will never happen. Select the appropriate equipment and bait, cast your line and wait for a bite. Success is guaranteed.
In addition to traditional fishing techniques, in Ultimate Fishing Simulator you’ll also find a winter map where you will be able to go ice fishing! Buy an auger at the store, find a suitable location and drill an airhole. But not too small, so that you can remove the fish.

Although it has a few quirks, the Ultimate Fishing Simulator does provide a believable environment paired with what seems to be a very accurate fishing simulation. While you have to play by a few rules and use defined reeling methods, there is still a good amount of personal technique required to land a fish. They put up a good fight and can be very devious in their fight to break your line - even the smallest of the fish can escape if you aren't careful.
Ultimate Fishing Simulator is a great way to start virtual fishing on PC. It is one of the most beautiful games of its kind, if not the most beautiful. We regret a perfectible tutorial and sometimes insufficient helps, but the online component always help to find someone to give you a hand. If you throw your line on Steam for a fishing game, feel free to try UFS.

Whilst Ultimate Fishing Simulator isn’t the only fishing simulator around (and some are free), it is probably the best one around, both in terms of graphics and fish movement accuracy. I could see it being used by professionals and those wanting to get into fishing, whilst everyone else could use it to relax. Well, at least for while that is.
