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

Known Issues:

"Fast Loot" addons will mess with FB counting fish -- they're gone before they can get counted. I am trying to find a work-around, but nothing solid yet.

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 (

Manual Installation

  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.
