How to catch Fish in Blacktail

There's a catch.

If you've been exploring the forests as Yaga in Blacktail, you will have seen fishing spots in various parts of the map. However, upon interacting with the spot, Yaga only says, "Fish," and that she should get a fishing rod someday. Making Yaga repeat the same word repeatedly may make for a cool little Easter egg. Still, the question remains—how do get the fishing rod? In this guide, we'll tell you how to get the fishing rod and use it to catch fish in Blacktail.

The fishing rod in Blacktail is not a craftable item for which players need to collect resources. Instead, you are given the fishing rod after completing a certain story quest. In the very first mission of Blacktail, you are introduced to Borvy and Jack, the talking mushrooms who speak about a dragon that needs to be slain and tasks Yaga with the job. In return, they will fix the bridge for Yaga to cross. After successfully defeating Peewee the Dragon in your first boss fight, you will have to head toward Borvy and Jack to inform them of the mission's success.

This is where the game segues into a quest-within-a-quest section, where a rock with a crude face sketched on it is blocking the path forward. The Voice in your head then directs you to find a chest containing the thread for a fishing rod. Once you complete this quest, you will obtain the fishing rod.

Catching a fish is very straightforward in Blacktail. Once you have obtained the fishing rod, you can stand in front of the fishing spots and choose to fish or not to fish. If you choose to fish, Yaga will throw the hook in the water. To successfully catch a fish, you must wait until the line starts to bob up and down. When it does, simply pull the fishing line (Left Click on PC, X on Controllers) to catch a fish. Once you catch a fish in a fishing spot, you cannot catch any more fish until you feed it to the Black Cat in front of your Hut.
