In Harvest Moon 64, players take on the role of a young man whose grandfather passes away, naming him the beneficiary of the family farm in his will. As the newest citizen of Flower Bud Village, the young man is introduced to the townsfolk by the mayor, and given two years to spruce up the farm. He'll need to earn money to buy new farm equipment, and one way of doing so is by catching fish to sell.
Obtain the fishing rod during the first year's spring season. Head to the fisherman's tent next to the pond, speak to the fisherman and accept the rod when he offers it.
Choose a location where you'd like to fish. There are three potential locations: the river, the goddess pond or the pond outside the fisherman's tent.
Equip the rod, then press the "B" button to cast your line.
Release the "B" button when the bobber begins shaking around in the water, indicating that a fish has bitten. If you time it correctly, you pull a fish out of the water, and it is added to your inventory.
Tips & Warnings
- To receive a free power berry from the Water Sprite, throw one of your fish into the pond by the fisherman's tent.
