Unlike many of the fishing mini-games that we find in other video games, fishing in the game Far Cry 5 requires some practice and some mechanics to master. In this guide we will try to teach you how to fish in Far Cry 5 .
How to fish in Far Cry 5
Fishing in Far Cry 5 is relaxing, and sometimes it's just nice to get away from the action that requires rescuing citizens and clearing outposts. Once you have a fishing rod, head for the nearest body of water and watch out for fish jumping on the surface. If you don't see any fish, chances are there aren't any right now, so try to come back later.
There are many things to consider when fishing in Far Cry 5 . First, where are you? Each fish has a different area where they like to live, so if you want to find different types of fish you have to visit different areas, lakes and rivers. It seems that even the time of day can change the number of fish present, and if you make too much noise they may run away. There's no guarantee on this, but it seems that these tricks are not a figment of the imagination, but they really do affect fishing in Far Cry 5 .
How to use the fishing rod
When you're ready to fish, head for a pier, or even just get in the water and pull out your fishing rod. Pull R2 or the right trigger depending on which console you're playing on and throw the line into the water. From here you need to press L2 or left trigger to slowly rewind the line, attracting the fish and letting them bite the bait.
Once a fish remains attached to the line, press R2 to lock it on the hook. When this happens, let R2 go and then concentrate on catching the fish. Pull the fish towards you using L2, while also using the right stick to move the fishing rod.
Now, here's the most complicated part: you have to rewind the line until you find the prey in your hands, but to do so, you'll have to fight a bit with the prey trying to go in the opposite direction. You have to hold the rod in the opposite direction, according to what the fish does, but this will create tension on the line, so let go L2 if you see that the tension starts to become too much, or you will break the line.
Keep rewinding, move the line and let L2 go until you can get the fish out. Once you catch some fish, find a shop and sell them to make some easy money. You'll also need to look at different types of bait if you hope to catch all of Far Cry 5 .
