I've designed a crude automatic fishing rod that I will likely improve later with a motor.
For now I will use gravity to reel the wire.
I don't like fishing (part of why I want it automated).

Sorry - someone already invented the Robofisher: http://www.fieldandstream.com/blogs/flytalk/is-robofishing-the-next-big-thing?src=SOC&dom=fb

There's so many different types of fishing, I'm not sure if you're only talking about bait fishing or if you want your rod to work for bait, jig, and fly fishing. There's also trolling from a boat and of course with a net instead of a rod. Some people fish with a bow and arrows. Some through the ice. Some cast into the surf, others from the shore of a lake. Some wade out into the water and fish. Some fish from boats. Different bait, different types of poles, different types of reels for each kind of fishing and each type of fish you are trying to catch.

Robofishing is remote controlled, I've designed a set and forget fishing line.

That seems rather unfair to the fish that get caught but are forgotten...does it release them?

"I don't like fishing, therefore I'm building fishing equipment." Extraordinary.

Imagine if you didn't like anime.

No.

If you feel that way about making chores less time consuming, then you may protest by finding something you don't enjoy and not use machines that makes the task easier.
