Sea or Land Rod Fishing:

* To fish you need a non-ruined improvised rod (long stick + rope) or a non-ruined new fishing rod extended (you can open/close rod at any time) with a non-ruined bait+hook attached
* To fish, Rod must be Open and the player cursor must be pointing a water body and at a max distance of 5 Meters from that body of water
* Once bait is cast simply wait for the random fishing timer to complete to see if you caught something (fish spawn on ground at player position).
* All fish can be filleted for eating using a sharp tool (Except chub, sardines)
* All fish caught can be cooked for maximum nutritional value.
* The fishing rods will worn out over time (can fixed with duct tape)
* You can decraft the Improvised Rod
* Fishing rods must be closed to fit in Storage or can be shouldered

Sea or Land Trap Fishing:

* You can craft the small fish trap with a water bottle and a sharp tool
* You can craft the large fishing trap with netting + metalwire (can be Decrafted)
* bait is required on both traps (worm, fish fillets, small guts, berries)
* The fishing traps will worn out over time (can fixed with duct tape)
* The trap can be used for holding items in inventory
* Traps can spawn various fish randomely no matter what the bait

Sea Shell digging:

* To dig out shell you need to be in sea water low depth and have a digging tool in hand, prompt should come up.
* Shells can be cooked for maximum nutritional value.

Known bugs:

Also, only getting one crafted hook from metal wire seems a bit unrealistic. Any way you could make it craft multiple? Anywhere at or above three hooks would probably be reasonable.

@ZeRoY Nice mod... works great. My only complaint is that the sound effects are WAY too loud. They're almost as loud as an unsuppressed M4. Without earplugs, the casting off sfx hurts my ears, due to the high pitch of the swing.

"fine! now the pan looks right, thanks!
the trap from the net can now be set into the water, but nothing is caught - next to it is fishing with a spinning rod and carps are pecking, but the net is not working
PS patch 1.05 - your mod, trader, zil130, vaz2107"
