As with most cozy games, learning how to fish in Fae Farm will be one of the paramount tools you learn and a great way to make money in the early-game process.

Luckily, you'll receive your fishing rod fairly quickly in Fae Farm, even so, it can be confusing knowing how to fish initially, if you need bait, how to upgrade fishing tools and more.

Join us as we answer all these questions and provide a full guide on how to fish in the game and make the most amount of Gold quickly.

How to catch fish in Fae Farm

If you follow the in-game tutorial quests, you'll meet Eddy the Mariner, the local fishing expert, within your first few days in Azoria.

Eddy will give you a fishing rod to practise with. To fish successfully in Fae Farm, follow these instructions:

  • Scroll your tool wheel until you have the fishing rod selected
  • Hold left-click and let go to release
  • When a fish is near left-click to jiggle the line
  • Repeat this process until a fish takes notice and advances to the rod
  • When a fish bites, hold left-click
  • Let go when the line appears red
  • Left-click and hold again when the line goes back to white
  • Repeat this process until you've reeled in the fish
  • If you hold left-click when the line is red, you'll lose the fish

If during your time fishing you start to run out of energy, you can consume any cooked food to replenish your energy bar or collect any of the green orbs scattered around town.
