Did you ever want to go to the great outdoors and have the fun experience of catching the biggest bass you've ever seen? Did you realize the outdoors have bugs and bears? Look no further, there is a fishing rod controller to play your various fishing games inside! There really isn't a wikipedia page about this fishing rod. As far as we know, it was used for "Bass Pro Shop: The Strike" as a peripheral. It comes with the same buttons as an Xbox 360 controller however it is missing 1 analog stick and the right trigger (RT). As a controller it's pretty sturdy and easy to mod. As a negative: it's really awkward to hold if your hands are slightly big. You'll notice gripping the controller will cause your knuckles to graze the inside of the rod constantly. Table of Contents:
So there are multiple fishing rod controllers from the olden age of the dreamcast. However, getting those to work on other consoles is a pain and not worth the time/money. You'll have a better chance finding this at a local gaming store or on Ebay. Sometimes Amazon will have it in shop but recently we have had troubles finding on that site.
