Fishing Buddy

Fishing Buddy

A fishing addon that keeps track of the fish you catch and helps manage your fishing gear.

- Double-click fishing
- Supports the new WoW "fish without a pole" feature
- Bring out your fishing pets! Drink heavily!
- 'Fish Watcher' lets you see the fish you've caught here before (or the fish that you've caught in the current session)
- Display your current skill level and the time since you started fishing
- Choose your fishing outfit and change into it easily
- Support for automatically adding a lure to your fishing pole
- Support for tracking 'cycle fish' such as the Nightfin Snapper so you know when to go looking for them

Example commands:
/fishingbuddy or /fb
toggle the display of the Fishing Buddy window
/fb help
print the list of Fishing Buddy commands
/fb switch
wear your chosen fishing outfit, or change back

Silly stuff:
In addition to displaying the fishing bonus for your fishing outfit, it also displays your 'style points' as inferred from Draznar's Fishing FAQ (

Fishing Buddy Plugins:
Outfit Manager -
Fish Tracking --
Broker: Fishing Buddy --
Titan Panel [Fishing Buddy] --

1. Unzip the '' file
2. If your unzip program allows you to specify a location, then unzip it into the 'Interface/AddOns' folder contained in your WoW folder (the location that WoW was installed)
3. If your unzip program doesn't let you specify the destination, then find your WoW folder (where it was installed) and drag the 'FishingBuddy' folder into the 'Interface/AddOns' folder.

    v1.3 Beta 5 positioning isn't working (resets on each catch) + there seems to be some visual glitch when not active.

    Hi, I just did the italian translation in the Localization tab. If any italian fellow want to check it out to review it I'd glad to, there will probably be some mistakes in it.... but it should be kinda ok!

    I downloaded version 1.0.7g 3 different and none of the zips contain the Tabbed Lib. It's not listed on your relationships - Embedded Libraries List to the Right either ->

    Hold the Press.. just downloaded it again and the LibTabbedFrame is in there.. Gonna reinstall it and if you hear nothing more from me on the matter.. all is good :)

    @rudemaster: Go

    That's weird, I just downloaded it to make sure, and it's in the Libs directory and seems complete. I will investigate more.

    I might be wrong here, but i have a suspicion that FB has started recently interfering with the Click To Move option of WoW by constantly turning it off. I still have to do proper research here before confirming and posting a ticket tho. Have anyone else noticed such behaviour ?

    Cause wow 4.3 client to hang during character loading. A trouble ticket has already been opened for this.

    @Odica -- yes, I noticed that. Not sure what I can do about it, though, without a more detailed information setup. Adding the fishing skill to LibBabble-SubZone would work, I'll look into making an addendum for FB.

    The fishing skills are provided by LibTourist as an attribute of a zone. A zone can only have one fishing skill because LibTourist does not distinguish subzones (like Jademir Lake). If a zone has subzones with a different skill, like Feralas, the lowest skill is used since that allows you to fish junk-free (somewhere) in that zone.

    See my notes on the fishing skills in LibTourist:
