In addition to the looting of villages and bandit camps in V rising, you will have the chance to fish. Just like in real life, you can catch a variety of fish, but you can also fish for rare loot. In this guide, we will look at everything you need to know about fishing.
This will include the basics of fishing, the fish you can catch, treasures, and some of the best fishing spots on the map. Let’s see how to get a fishing rod so that you can start fishing for the first time.
Get a fishing rod
To fish, you will need to get a fishing rod. Fortunately, it’s quite simple. First of all, you will have to build a Carpentry Bench, which will unlock after defeating Rufus the Foreman. He’s a level 20 boss. located at the bandits’ logging camp in the woods of Farbane.
Once you defeat him, you’ll receive the Woodworking Bench Blueprint, along with the Fishing Rod.
Now you will need to build the bench with the following materials.
- 12x boards
- 60x animal skin
There is only one last step before you have a fishing rod! At your carpentry workbench, you will be able to craft a fishing rod with the materials listed below.
- 8x boards
- 4x Copper Ingot
- 4x coarse yarn
With this you can start fishing. Next, let’s look at where you can do your fishing.
You can fish on marked fishing grounds in bodies of water. As you approach the water, you may notice a bubbly white area. It is a fishing place; all you have to do is equip your rod and click on the spot.
This will cast your line and wait for the water to splash. Once that happens, click again to rewind your grip. Overall, fishing is pretty straightforward, just click once to cast, and once to reel.
After catching your prize, the fishing spot will disappear. If you want to continue fishing, you will need to find another fishing spot in a body of water.
Recommended fishing spots
Some bodies of water will have one or two places where you can fish, which can limit the time you spend fishing. Luckily, there are certain areas on the map that have multiple fishing spots.
One of the best places to fish on the entire map is at Brighthaven Docks. This area has plenty of fishing spots available to you. If you decide to fish here, beware of nearby enemies. This is a populated area, so we recommend having strong armor and weapons so you can take out any unwanted enemies before you start fishing.
Below, we’ll review a few more places that are great fishing spots.
