Fish Tales (FT) is a pinball machine created by Williams in 1992. It has the honour of being in the top 20 pinball machines with respect to production, selling over 13,000 units.

The main theme of the machine is fishing, and the player has to obtain the greatest number of fish, while telling lies about the size of them. On the upper part of the machine there is a fish that moves its tail when the player obtains certain goals during play.

In addition, this machine saw the introduction of flippers which were 1/8 of an inch shorter than other Williams machines of the period, which created a greater challenge for players, as the space between flippers was 1/4 of an inch wider. This improvement was added to a few other Williams models, before it was finally abandoned.
