1995 iN!-Ovation Award
Gone Fishin’ (Amtex Software/Broderbund) lets you experience the pleasures of the perfect fishing trip without leaving home. This simulation program takes you to Lake Ontario’s Bay of Quinte, a real fishing spot filled with an enormous variety of fish. Customize your environment by selecting the season, time of day, and weather conditions. Then pick up your gear at the local tackle shop and head out to any number of hot spots to try your luck. While you’re waiting for a strike you can pick up some tips from Bill Saiff, host of the PBS show Rod & Reel. This program feels like the real thing and is amazingly soothing. The whole disc is a delight, from the excellent graphics to the clever design. Give this one a try and you’ll be hooked.
