Fisherman's Delight: Set 1 is a single player, mouse controlled, shareware fishing simulation.

The game starts by showing the player none thumbnail pictures representing seven freshwater and two salt water fishing locations. In each location some fish predominate, some freshwater locations are trout waters while others have salmon or bass. The fish distribution is random, they can be at any of three different depths and one depth will always have more fish than the other two After the player selects a location they are then taken through a screen on which they select their rod and line, following this they select their lure and they begin to fish. There is no animation to speak of in this game, the scene is a medium resolution static image, occasionally a butterfly can be seen but what the player has to watch for is a ripple or minor disturbance on the surface of the water indicating where the fish may be lurking.

When a fish takes the lure the player must hit the Set/Net button quickly, take too long and the fish will get away. Assuming the hook is set the player then pounds the reel in' button until the fish is within netting distance. Once again they must hit the Set/Net button quickly or the fish will get away.

Once fishing has begun the player may change their rod, line, and lure and can change location by left clicking to return to the location selection screen. The game maintains two catch records, one records the last fifty fish caught, and the second records the best catch for each species of fish.
