Fish flingers is alot easier than you might expect overall.
knowing each hook/weight/bait is only used for one fish per game + 2 step method + fcs = epic easy
For anyone who doesn't know:
2 Step method is a way to find the correct bait/hook/weight in 2 steps for any given fish, based on the fact you get 0% 16% or 33% subject to correctness (numbers aren't exact for all cases cause rounding but close enough that you can follow it)
Every bait has 2 similar - 1 by colour and 1 by shape you can arrange them into a circle of sorts using this (worm, shrimp, crayfish, grey moth, green moth, locust, cricket, maggot, back to worm) so each one is between the two similar (e.g. worm is same shape as maggot and same colour as shrimp)
You pick a bait that hasn't been used at random (e.g. worm) - see percent.
Then pick a bait that is 3 steps away on the 'circle' (e.g. grey moth) - view percent:
No change in percent means they are both equal wrong, eliminating 2 colours and 2 shapes for 6/8 baits (e.g worm, shrimp, crayfish, grey moth, green moth and maggots) Leaving just 2 possible baits (e.g. cricket or locust)
If the percent drops by 16% it is similar to where you started (e.g. shrimp or maggot)
If the percent drops by 33% you were right before (e.g. worm)
If the percent goes up by 33% you are correct now (e.g. grey moth)
If the percent goes up by 16% you need a similar bait (e.g. crayfish or green moth)
For no change and + or - 16% just change to 1 of the two +16% shift means the other, 33% shift means correct.
For hooks it is a similar process but simpler as hooks are in similar pairs (regular and slim, large and double, wood and bone)
Pick a hook (e.g. regular) - see percent
Change to a non-similar hook (e.g. wood) - see percent
No change - it's in the other pair (e.g. large or double)
+16% - other one of current pair (e.g. bone)
-16% - other one of original pair (e.g. slim)
+33% - your right (e.g. wood)
-33% - original was right (e.g. regular)
For weights again very similar, but quite easy, similar weights are 1 either side (so 1 and 3 are similar to 2)
Start with 2 or 5 weight (for e.g. lets go 2) - see percent
Swap to the other (e.g. 5) - see percent
-16% - 1 or 3
+16% - 4 or 6
-33% - 2
+33% - 5
Using the method with a bit of practice you can get the combos very quickly, bait is the hardest bit to remember the order and as on fish 6 there is gonna be 3 options left. But as you find each combo it makes the next ones easier as you eliminate options so by the time you go to fish 6 you should get 66% on first cast. Plus of course grabbing the hint from the shop guy before the game starts helps you know when a certain option belongs to a certain fish.
E.g. if he said cod like red bait and you have used shrimp but not got cod you know nothing can be worms other than the cod.
