    | Why This Guide Exists
    |
    | Why a guide specifically on fishing? Can't most of this information be found
    | in your huge Harvest Moon guide? Yes, most of the information here will
    | eventually appear in my larger Harvest Moon FAQ, but a large portion of
    | people loading an FAQ actually care about the fishing - and why force them to
    | download what will eventually be a 1-megabyte file just for a small portion
    | of that content? That's my reasoning behind all these spin-off specialized
    | guides.
    |
    |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    | What You'll Find
    |
    | Here you'll find everything there is to know about fishing, fishing spots and
    | the fish themselves. That includes recipes they can be used in, fish
    | availability, and when different fishing spots are available. Eventually,
    | there will also be a thorough fish profit analysis.

    | Future Plans
    |

    | Obtaining and Strengthening the Rod
    |
    | In order to fish, first you naturally must obtain a fishing rod. Obtaining
    | the fishing rod is very simple: meet Toby outside On the Hook, down the
    | stairs from the pier. He'll give you one for free. Now wasn't that easy?
    |
    | As far as strengthening goes, however, there are two ways to strengthen the
    | rod: you can 'upgrade' it and you can 'level' it.
    |
    | 'Levelling' your rod occurs just from standard use. Every time you catch and
    | reel in a fish, your rod gains points towards its next level. Your progress
    | can be observed on the Tools screen of the in-game status screens.
    |
    | When your rod reaches a new level, you'll be able to hold down A longer when
    | casting to cast further. In this way, you'll be able to catch rarer fish.
    | Certain fish cannot be caught at all until your rod has levelled up.
    |
    | The other method of strengthening is 'upgrading' your rod, which happens at
    | either the Blacksmith's Shop or the General Store. At the Blacksmith's Shop,
    | you can upgrade your rod by paying a fee and supplying a Metal corresponding
    | to the next level of rod (Iron, Copper, Silver, Gold); at the General Store,
    | you can upgrade your rod just by paying the fee, but the fee is three times
    | higher than the Blacksmith's Shop.
    |
    | 'Upgrading' your rod makes it use less stamina when you reel fish in, but it
    | also increases your odds of catching rarer fish. Your rod must be levelled
    | to catch rarer fish, but once levelled, upgrading it is the only way to
    | increase the likelihood of catching the rarer fish over the more common fish.
    |
    | For more detailed information on tools, levelling and upgrading, search for
    | { UPG } without the spaces.

    | How to Fish
    |
    | Fishing in Tree of Tranquility is a relatively easy process. Once you have
    | your rod, simply go to one of the several fishing spots, equip the rod and
    | use it by pressing A (motion controls are also available, though are not
    | necessary). Then, when a fish bites (you'll be alerted by a sound, a visual
    | change, and a controller vibration), press A repeatedly or hold the
    | controller vertically to reel the fish in. Holding the controller vertically
    | is obviously easier, but for the Classic Controller you'll have to press A
    | as fast as you can.
    |
    | Unlike some recent Harvest Moon games, you won't actually see fish nibbling
    | on your line in the water. Instead, you must simply wait patiently while your
    | hook dangles until something bites.
    |
    | If you successfully reel in the fish, it will appear in your hands and you
    | can either drop it or put it in your rucksack. If you fail, it will swim off
    | and you'll have to cast again.
    |
    | If you have an levelled-up fishing rod, you can power it up by holding it
    | vertical for longer (for the WiiMote), or by holding the A button longer.
    | It's necessary to power your rod up to catch better fish.
    |
    | Only same-type fish will stack in your rucksack, but chances are you won't
    | catch enough varieties of fish on a single trip for that to matter.
    |
    |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {FST} _
    | Stamina
    |
    | Stamina use while fishing is interesting. Casting your line will use no
    | stamina, and neither will sitting there waiting for a fish. The only time
    | stamina is consumed is when a fish is resisting and you're trying to reel it
    | in.
    |
    | This makes for some very interesting strategy, because this is the only tool
    | usage in the game where you can run out of stamina halfway through using a
    | tool. With other tools, you know if one more use will deplete your stamina
    | fully, but with a fishing rod it's dependent on how fast you reel in the
    | fish (which itself is only dependent on the type of fish caught, not on your
    | reeling skill).
    |
    | As mentioned above, better rods take less stamina to reel in their fish, so
    | upgrade when you get the chance.
    |

    | Why Fish?
    |
    | Fishing has many important uses in the game. Its usage is not as varied as
    | mining and some other activities, but it is equally important:
    |
    |  - Profit. Fishing is a great way to make some extra money. Many fish sell
    |    for upwards of 200G, making it easy to make some extra cash in your spare
    |    time, especially with a levelled and upgraded rod from the best fishing
    |    spots.
    |
    |  - Power Berry. Fishing is the only way to obtain a certain Power Berry. To
    |    obtain it you must level your rod up to level 3 (note: you don't need to
    |    upgrade it for this Power Berry, just level it through usage). The next
    |    time you cast after that, you'll fish up this Power Berry.
    |
    |  - Food. Fish make great dishes, and are the ingredients in dozens of the
    |    game's recipes.
    |
    |  - Completion. One of the items accessible on the bookshelf screens is a
    |    "Fish List", which contains a list of all the possible fish obtained from
    |    the rivers and ocean. If you're a completionist, you'll want to complete
    |    this too.
    |
    |  - Goddess Recipes. By far the most important reason to fish is that every
    |    single goddess recipe requires at least one fish:
    |      - Carp for Daren's tree.
    |      - Char for Ben's tree.
    |      - Saury for Collin's tree.
    |      - Wood Fish for Alan's tree.
    |      - Tuna for Edge's tree.
    |    Daren's tree also requires a Good Herb Fish, a fish-related dish that must
    |    be cooked yourself.

    | Tips for a Successful Expedition
    |
    | If you're going on a fishing trip with the intention of bringing back a nice
    | haul, here are a few tips:
    |
    |  - Choose your spot carefully. Some spots have much better fish available
    |    than others, and there's no point spending all day at a spot when there's
    |    better fish to be had elsewhere.

    |  - Use the weather. Certain weather patterns are better for fishing, most
    |    notably rain. This is especially convenient given that rainy days mean
    |    no crop watering, adding to the time you can spend fishing.
    |
    |  - Get there early, stay late. The best fishing times are early in the
    |    morning and late at night, so either plan to spend all day there or do
    |    your chores around mid-day when the fish are less active.
    |
    |  - Bring stamina-restoring items. Fishing depletes your stamina fast,
    |    especially before you get any Power Berries or upgrade the rod: restoring
    |    items will help. The best items for stamina recovery are Bodigizer XL,
    |    any type of Pizza or any type of Buckwheat dish (except for Cocktails
    |    or Chips). The best purchasable stamina recovery items are Bodigizer XL
    |    (520G from the Clinic), Southern Omelette (550G from Pineapple Inn) and
    |    Sweet Yam Cake (660G from the Fall/Winter markets).
    |
    |  - Decide whether to bring a match set. On the positive side, a match set
    |    allows you to cook one of the fish you eat for free stamina restoration.
    |    On the negative side, it takes up a spot in your rucksack. If you're
    |    fishing near the ocean, where all the bonfire pits are located, it's a
    |    good idea to bring one; but it's useless if you're fishing in the river.

    | Fish are listed in order of sale value and rarity (which are correlated).

    |        though, East Gull Island offers much better fishing.

    |/There are 41 different fish in Tree of Tranquility. All can be caught using
    | some level fishing rod, and some can be purchased as well. Many can be used
    | in recipes.
    |
    | 'Rarity' is my own device to describe how difficult it is to catch a certain
    | fish - it is not actually a function in the game. Essentially, a fish with
    | rarity 1 is easily catchable with the lowest-level rod, whereas a fish with
    | rarity 4 requires a higher-level rod and a bit of luck. A fish with rarity 5
    | requires a higher-level rod and also has some special condition associated
    | with it.
    |
    | 'Presses' refers to the number of button presses are required to reel the
    | fish in. Holding the controller vertically is easier, but the button presses
    | give a general gauge for how difficult each fish is to reel.

    |/There are 41 fish in the game, and six recipes involve one ingredient that
    | can be any of these fish: Herb Fish, Meuniere, Bouillabaise, Marinated Fish,
    | Sushi and Sashimi.
    |
    | Fortunately, the six fish recipes operate on a unified mechanic, and they can
    | all be profitable when done properly. For all these dishes, the quality of
    | the dish is based on the sale prices of the ingredients used.
    |
    | The qualities are based on three cut-off points that divide the dish into
    | four qualities. If the total value of your ingredients is less than the
    | bottom cut-off, the dish will turn out Decent. If the total value of your
    | ingredients is greater than the top cut-off, the dish will turn out Shining.
    |
    | For example, Herb Fish's cut-offs are at 300G, 600G and 1200G. A dish made
    | from ingredients summing to 150G would be Decent; 450G would be Good; 750G
    | would be Perfect; and 1350G would be Shining. These are just examples: any
    | sum less than 300G will be Decent; any sum between 300G and 600G will be
    | Good; any sum between 600G and 1200G will be Perfect; and any sum above
    | 1200G will be Shining.
    |
    | Below are the cut-offs and sale prices for the six fish dishes. Use these
    | numbers to determine if it's worth it to cook your fish into the dish or
    | just sell them outright. Note also that for dishes involving an ingredient
    | other than fish, the sale value of those ingredients counts too - so pay
    | attention to your ingredient qualities. Sale prices are listed below the
    | cut-off that leads to them - so if your ingredients add up to the cut-off
    | or more, the below dish price will result.
    |
    | For convenience, the sale price of every ingredient used in any of the above
    | recipes is supplied at the bottom of this section.

    | What's the difference between a crustacean and a fish?
    |
    | Practically, the only difference between the two is what recipes they can be
    | used in. In the real world, one has scales and one has claws, or something
    | like that. But in Tree of Tranquility, the only relevant difference is what
    | recipes they can be used in.

    | Where is the best fishing location?

    |                                                              V
    | To e-mail me, PLEASE preface your e-mail subject line with [ToT] in
    | brackets. I get a lot of spam, so that will help me sort through it and
    | find your e-mail. If possible, IM me instead of e-mailing me if you have a
    | question, but e-mail me if you have a contribution or correction.
    |
    | If you are submitting a tip or correction, please include how you would
    | like to be credited. Otherwise I'll credit you by your e-mail address or
    | screenname.
    |
    | I'd hoped not to have to do this, but I also need to make a disclaimer about
    | the type of communication I'll accept. But my old note scared people off, so
    | let me make it more succinct.
    |
    | I'm more than happy to answer any questions about Harvest Moon: Tree of
    | Tranquility, via e-mail or IM. However, please note the
    | following:
    |  - I am not interested in just chatting about Harvest Moon: Tree of
    |    Tranquility. That means, don't ask me who I married, if I've finished the
    |    game, how much money I have, etc. And I'm not all that interested in
    |    hearing every detail about your farm either. Sorry.
    |  - I am not interested in chatting about any other game, nor am I qualified
    |    to answer questions about any game except for Harvest Moon: Tree of
    |    Tranquility. That means, don't ask me about Spore, Gears of War,
    |    Kingodm Hearts, Animal Crossing or Age of Empires. Don't ask me what other
    |    video game systems I have. Don't list yours for me. I'm really not
    |    interested in hearing about it. Sorry.
    |  - If you ask me a question that is clearly stated somewhere in this guide,
    |    I'll tell you how to find it. I won't look up the answer for you. I didn't
    |    write this guide just so people could scroll to the bottom and find my
    |    e-mail address. Don't be afraid to ask, but don't be upset if I respond
    |    with a search code.
    |  - Please type communicably. I'm not obsessed with proper grammar/spelling,
    |    but if I can't understand what you're saying I just won't respond. And
    |    this one is just a pet peeve of mine: I have no idea what any of these
    |    "smileys" mean: ^^ ^^; -_- >> << <<; >>;; <_> >_< n-n n.n - and I have no
    |    desire to know. So don't say anything that's dependent on me understanding
    |    what these devilspawn illegitimate children of lolspeak and anime mean.
    |  - I am not interested in just chatting. That means, do not send me videos
    |    of sneezing pandas. Do not ask me what I look like. Do not ask me what
    |    "IMing" is. Do not ask me if I know a good cheat site. Do not send me the
    |    "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" video. Do not send me a "Kiwee Emoticon." Do
    |    not ask me if I like Naruto. And do NOT write DetroitDJ fanfiction.
    |    Seriously, creepy.
    |
    | And yes, every single thing I've listed above has actually happened.
    |
    | Basically, if you contact me and I don't answer, ask yourself one question:
    | Am I asking a question about Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility? If the answer
    | is no, then now you know why I'm not responding. If you have a question,
    | don't hesitate to ask.
