       One of the best treats in BOF3 was the fishing sub game.It was almost a game in its own.Well
    I know there are millions of lost gamers who haven't caught all the fish.In this FAQ I will tell
    where to get the fish and which bait to use.For more FAQs and PICs visit my website at.

    me at any time about this game.I won't respond to any email unless you've visited my site.

    1)
    LET'S START FISHING
       When you first start the game you may not want to fish.But many good things come from fishin.
    You can get plenty of healing fish and trade with Manillo for cool weapons.So the first thing 
    you'll want to is learn all the rules.Then learn all the tecs.When you've done that get ready to
    fish.But you won't have good bate but don't worry their not picky.
    _________________________________________________________________________________________________
    2)
    HUNTING NEW FISH
      You'll need to do this plenty of times when looking for a fish.The best tip is to look at a 
    fishes shadow.Its easy to pick an octopus out.Some fish have really light shadows so its hard to
    see them.The lighter fish tend to be harder to pull.Trying different types of bait will help alot.
    _________________________________________________________________________________________________
    3)
    THE ROD'S
      These items are most important when it comes to fishin.I mean there's no point hunting a fish 
    with out a good rod or it will snap.The Rods are has follows.
    
    RODS                 LOCATION                               DESCRIPTION
    wooden rod           shop in Mcneil                         Beginner rod/breaks easily/low range

    deluxe rod           northern checkpoint                    strong rod/wide range
    angling rod          faerie village                         best range/high pull rate/hardtohold

    masters rod          reward for"the fish"rank               the best rod
    _________________________________________________________________________________________________
    4)
    THE BAIT
      The bait is what decides if they bite or they don't.Fish only like certain baits.So its best
    to collect has much bait as possible.The list follows:
