Fishing Holes

Gathering items as a Fisher happens whereever there is water or other appropriate substance with fish present in it. Each location has several different items it is possible to gather from it. As you gain levels for Fisher, your Fishing Log is filled with general details of what is possible to fish up in each location, and as you manage to catch a certain type of item more details are recorded, although it fails to record what conditions (bait, weather, etc) are required for catching them. Note that to fish at certain locations you may need the appropriate trait even if your level would allow you to otherwise fish there, such as Dunefishing to fish in quicksand or Hellfishing to fish in magma.
In version 1.x there was no Log available, you simply had to remember where to go to gather the items you needed.

See details of the fishing holes here.
