Fishing in WoW

My brain appears to have dribbled out of my skull while trying to become skilled enough at fishing to catch Icefin Bluefish so I can get a nice spell damage buff. So I present my protips for leveling fishing:

1) bind 'cast line' to middle mouse button
b) switch on autoloot
III) have two monitors
δ) find a radio show/podcast/something to hold your attention

The procedure is then this: Middle click and move your mouse over the bob. Go back to whatever you were doing on the other screen. When your peripheral vision spots the splash, right click on the bob, then middle click again. Repeat ad nauseum.

Considering I managed to gain 90-odd levels of fishing today without going completely insane, I think this is as close to 'worst mechanic ever' as I can find.

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

I much prefer the "fish a little" while you level, travel, etc.
