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.

    You can't cast the "Fragrant" Pheromone fish on yourself, only on other people now. I've thought about auto-targeting and throwing it, but couldn't find a nice solution for all situations. It'd be nice if Nat showed up right after you caught one, and then I could throw it at him :-)

    Hey, Why was the "Fragrant" Pheromone Fish support removed in 1.5.1?

    What happened to the Fishing Buddy page on I just tried to find it and all I find are associated addons, but not the main one.

    The comments on the Curse site are being watched. The comments here on Curseforge not so much.

    Don't know if these comments are being checked or not but decided to post it here anyways. The display settings for the helm and cloak are being reset when switching back to my normal helm and weapon. I don't have it checked in the outfitter portion of the mod. Am I doing something wrong or just over looking a setting in the options?

    Seems to be a bug thats not registering correct amount of casts in blackwind lake in terrokar. Ive been trying for mr pinchy lately and thought the cast number seemed a little low for the time id been on the lake and after observing it closely for a while i noticed that after moving between pools it would forget the last amount of casts since the last pool. eg id have say 145 casts total and 5 in current session then move to next pool in same location and it would revert back to 145 casts and 0 current session.

    pretty sure im well over 1000 pool casts for pinchy atm but fb only shows 145 on blackwind lake ive been circling for hrs.

    sry if this has already been posted.

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