The Fishing Brothers (Japanese: つりずききょうだい Fishing Brothers), or more commonly called the Fishing Gurus (Japanese: つりめいじん Fishing Masters), are characters in Generations I, II, III, and IV who give out different types of Rods. They are all related to each other as brothers, and are spread out through Kanto and Johto. Other characters who give out Fishing Rods appear in Hoenn and Sinnoh.
