Maybe what the Wii needs is a little fishing

Can a faux pole and catch help overcome its funk?

Slippery Brick

We were saddened to hear that fellow Craver Will Greenwald has fallen into a Wii funk of late. But perhaps he just needs a break from his buddy Mario, and we think we've found the relaxing pastime he needs--a little fishing.

Dragon's new fishing rod controller would seem to be the perfect accompaniment to the " Bass Fishing Wii " that came out in Japan over the summer. Best of all, it even includes a faux fish at the end of its faux line--because the last thing we'd want is to sour him even more on the Wii by going home empty-handed.
