How to Catch Fish

Firstly, in order to catch fish, you'll need a fishing rod. Fishing rods can be found in the same way as weapons. There is also potential to find fishing rods in barrels near bodies of water.

You'll then need to find a place to fish. Head to a Lake, River or the coast and look for circles of white water with fish below, these are the places you can fish.

Once there, simply equip your rod (note, your fishing rod takes up a slot in your inventory, so you'll have one less space for weapons) and hold the action button to choose the angle for your cast, aiming for the centre of the fishing spot.

After your fishing line is in the spot, wait for the fish to bite. This will force the hook underwater, then you simply need to reel it in.
