Reel Fishing, also known as Fish Eyes in Japan, is a series of fishing video games by Natsumi. The first game, Reel Fishing, was released for the PlayStation in 1996.


There are several games in the series. The first two games, Reel Fishing (released in 1996)[1] and Reel Fishing II (released in 2000)[2] appeared on the PlayStation. They were followed by Reel Fishing III in 2003 on the PlayStation 2.[3] A special fishing reel controller was released with the first game that was also compatible with the sequels. The first game was successful enough to reach "Greatest Hits" status.

Reel Fishing: Wild was released for the Dreamcast in 2001, making it the first non-Sony entry of the series.[4] In 2006, Natsume released Reel Fishing: Life & Nature[5] and Reel Fishing: The Great Outdoors for the handheld PlayStation Portable.[6] Reel Fishing: Life & Nature was also planned for the Nintendo DS, but was canceled.[7] Two installments for the Wii, Reel Fishing: Angler's Dream and Reel Fishing Challenge (the latter on WiiWare) were released in 2009.[8]
