    I don't like the current fishing system, either. I rather the typical standing there with a pole at the mercy of rng, lol.

    I'm sure it is something that will be padded out later. Currently it feels like placeholder for a bigger skill.

    Don't like the current system, feels "wrong" to jump in the water and chase after fish to catch them with your hands.
    I would like to see a regular fishing system with fishing poles and lures. It doesn't have to be overly complicated. A system like FFXI had was pretty much spot on imho. Easy but still enough depth to requite thinking/knowledge and planning. It also had a pretty good risk vs. reward balance.

    The 'normal' way to catch fish is to wade into the water, chase them around, and catch them in a net. The vast majority of fish, by weight, is caught this way. The first mechanized way to catch fish was using weirs, which is - you guessed it - trapping the fish in a maze of sticks and wading in and catching it with your bare hands.

    I do not understand this fascination with the fishing pole ^-^

    ...Also perhaps hazardous.

    My father taught me to fish with a cast net this way - with good beer, and a decent distance away from him so I wouldn't brain him with the lead weights. (It's a pity I was 12 at the time. The beer did not go down well.)

    If that makes it into the game, I'll become a master bard just for the Fishy song.

    ( I'm perfectly happy with fishing as it is, but I do like snowe's combat skill fishing suggestions for added fun.)

    Actually, sword/staff fishing is... You stick the weapon under the path of the fish, wait for it to pass, and flip it into the air. It's a slap fishing style.

    You can also do spear fishing with any pokey weapon; which is two ways of moving slow until the fish is within your strike and jabbing it.

    Unarmed has more options; The basic hand/bite strike is either you wait for the fish to come to you, or you move to where the fish can't see your shadow and dart down to get it in a grab (or the slap style which can either be above or below for empty-hand.)

    Psychology/Mentalism might work directly on the fish, making it jump from the water or dart into your trap.
