Fishing is an element of gameplay that allows the player to catch fish with a Fishing Pole in any body of water.
How To Fish
First the player must craft a Fishing Pole. The fishing pole may then be used on any body of water, any distance from the player on the screen. A bobber (float) will appear on the screen where the line is cast. After a period of time, the catch indicator will appear above the players head and you may click to reel in the fish. Caught fish are automatically added to the player's inventory.
The time between casting and catching a fish is highly variable. It can be almost immediately or seemingly not at all.
Fishing is new as of Alpha 0.8.3.0 and little is known yet about catch rates, fish population, and shallow vs. deep water. Smoodlez has also mentioned that this is just the first implementation and fishing will develop further in later updates.
Types of Fish
