The Sega Dreamcast offered a motion-sensitive fishing rod controller, complete with reel, as an official peripheral.

Sega, who released three fishing titles over the course of the Dreamcast's lifespan (Sega Bass Fishing 1 and 2, and Sega Marine Fishing), saw that the special peripherals used in arcade games were one of the things that separated arcade gameplay from what was available in home consoles at the time. Presaging the wide release of plastic implements mimicking real-world items, they released a fishing rod controller, which was capable of sensing up-down motions, as well as offering a reel for players to haul in virtual fish.

It also worked for some non-fishing game, mostly Sega produced titles. But playing those with the fishing controller proved to be a challenge of its own!
