1. Buy a rod, go to water, press space.

2. Yes

3. Either go afk or follow the prompts on screen

4. Go to places where there are less people = more rare fish

5. You sell it to a trade vendor with nodes connected to the location the fish was caught

6. More you fish higher level, higher level = better chance at better fish (iirc)

Have fun :D

I read somewhere that the best boat has 12 slots in it. 12 slots for what, though?

omg another positive post!

thumbs up!

And, proper infos too! it's very profitable. To many, it is the first and easiest way to buy into things like a beginners grey horsie!

a horse is about 10k if memory serves, and that's like 4-5 fish!

imagine that, going to a person, giving them 5 fish and they give you a horse! WUT!

xD

They are called trade manager.

You will always, always, always, find them next to the stable manager, so you won't miss them at all. If you see a horse head in the map of a city, the trade manager is next to it.

 

Also, very important. Keep an eye where you fish, because for you to hand the fish to the trade manager, the node must be active.

If you are in a big city, then that's ok, but if you are some meters away from the city, you will have to connect the node to the city you want to take the fish to ;)

I know drying fish is a process, but I've been unable to dry my fish- Am I missing something here?

There's tons of videos on YouTube from very kind and knowledgeable players, I've watched a few and is unbelievable how complex and fun this game is.

If you see a shit load of people fishing in one place, go there and fish.  There's a reason for it.
