How to Fish & Get Fishing Rods in Far Cry 5
Fishing in Far Cry 5 can be tricky to get the hang of at first, but with enough practice, you’ll be able to reel them in with the best of them. In order to fish in Far Cry 5, you’ll first have to pick up a fishing rod at a predetermined dock. Select the rod using the weapon wheel, then cast the line into the water.
The hard part now is trying to entice the fish to bite, and one of the best ways to do this is by slowly reeling the line back repeatedly. When done properly, they’ll be drawn towards your line, and before too long, you’ll snag one. Once one has hooked on, pull in the opposite direction, holding on until you manage to successfully bring it nearby the dock. At this point, your avatar should automatically pull the fish out of the water, once it is close enough.
