Fishing Buddy  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.4b

Fishing Buddy
-------------

Yet another fishing support add-on.

Support thread: Fishing Buddy

Features:
- '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
- Full Titan Panel support
- myAddOns support
- Preliminary 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

There are two actual add-ons -- the second one, OutfitDisplayFrame,
handles the pretty pane to set up your fishing outfit (it's next on
the list to be made into something more general that anyone can use).
The OutfitDisplayFrame addon can be safely left out if you have a
preferred equipment manager.

alt-clicking on an item in your outfit display will clear it

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
Updated from duplicate postin: HERE.
Check there for updates if this falls behind.

Thanks to the authors of:

TackleBox -- still adding cool features to keep up with!
Impp's Fishing DB
QuickWeaponSwap

and many, many others!

Feel free to send comments to Sutorix on the Windrunner server.

Installation
------------

1. Unzip the 'FishingBuddyVERSION.zip' 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' and 'OutfitDisplayFrame' folder into the
'Interface/AddOns' folder.
Version 1.4b
- Get my act together with respect to watch window location (thanks Grizzly_UK!)

Version 1.4a
- More work on keeping the watcher visible and onscreen (using LibWindow)
- Handle version changes and per-player settings correctly
- Fix an issue with LibTourist where it doesn't check for esMX

Version 1.4
- Updated German translation (thanks DirtyHarryGermany!)
- Attempted fix for 64-bit crash bug (#227) by using PLAYER_ALIVE
- Remove invalid frame reference in watcher window (Curse #229)
- Add "/fb fishdata reset" to clear out all fish location data (#127)
- More work on the watcher frame to try and make it stay on screen all the time

Doesn't the name of the author of both addons look fairly similar?

Doesn't the double right click casting seem like something both addons offer..1 in a sort of "light" version of the other addon?

Don't you think it's a little unusual 1 addon was updated..& the other wasn't..like it could possibly be a project that isn't going to be focused on anymore?
Doesn't it seems like not everyone like enforced features?
Me not.

Fishing Ace! is all the core goodness of Fishing Buddy distilled down into it's simplest form.

If you equip a fishing pole, you will get double-right-click casting.

Aww, forgot a bugreport.
If I login, /equipset Fishing Buddy, then click FB icon to stop fishing, it will equip first listed set, other than "FB", irrelevant to which set was equipped before.
I.e., I have sets "Party", "Solo" and "Fishing Buddy".
I'm logging in being in "Solo" (as i'm 99,(9)% of the time).
But when stopping fishing, FB will equip "Party" all of the time, unless I explicitly equip "Solo" before putting on "Fishing Buddy".

FB erroneously incrementing fish counter to next skillup.
The case is:
I'm reeling fish -> counter increase -> I get skillup -> counter reset -> I loot fish -> counter increase.
Shouldn't increment counter if it was reset since last reel (or even since last cast, which is more accurate).

Well, Outfitter changes them automatically when I switch specs. I like that a lot.

All I have is a simple Outfitter outfit set up to change when the Activity > Fishing because active, which I assume is what happens when I click the FB icon. It's just not actually switching my clothes, although for whatever reason the outfit does get checked in the Outfitter pane, as if it is being selected.

Perhaps it's an Outfitter issue, but I haven't updated Outfitter since it stopped working, only FB.

Either way, I'm not using FB button to change, it's just too small to hit.

With a mouse with spare buttons, it's much easier to bind a macro like
(Worgen Druid)
Code:
#showtooltip
/equipset [noequipped:Fishing Poles,nocombat,mod:shift] Fishing Buddy
/stopmacro [nocombat,mod:shift]
/cast [equipped:Fishing Poles,nocombat] Fishing; Darkflight
or (immensely useful combo for priest)
Code:
MACRO 16777253 "F10" INV_Misc_QuestionMark
#showtooltip
/equipset [noequipped:Fishing Poles,nocombat,mod:shift] Fishing Buddy
/stopmacro [nocombat,mod:shift]
/cast [equipped:Fishing Poles,nocombat] Fishing; [mod:ctrl] Mass Dispel; [nomod,spec:1] Dispersion; Desperate Prayer
END
MACRO 16777257 "F11" INV_Misc_QuestionMark
#showtooltip
/cast [equipped:fishing poles] Levitate; Lifeblood
END
