    What is the key to good fishing in LOTRO?

    Good bait

    Weekly Question 25

    Good bait...and a pole...and a body of water (even a self-contained body of water, like a quarry pond, which can only be filled with rain water and has no ties to any stream, river, creek, lake, etc.).

    Patience and good timing.

    The key to good fishing in LOTRO:

    Watch the pole, not the bait. If you watch the bait, you may twitch and get nothing. If you watch the pole, when it goes, you got a fish... or weeds?!!

    Good fishing is in the scenery, sit back and enjoy it, weeds, boots, and rusty daggers.

    Patience... and some killer cosmetics so you look good standing around

    Good fishing?

    Make sure the water is the right colour. Pink water is sometimes OK. Even in the depths of Moria you can find the occasional fish.
    But green water is bad, m'kay? It looks like weewee and is even worse for you.
    And make sure the stuff in the pools is water, not RED HOT BURNING DEATH LAVA. If your pole melts, that's a clue it's generally not OK to fish there.

    as long as you catch something, your doing it right. Fishing is like a box of chocolate, you never know what your going to get.

    For fly fishing, using a bit of Hobbit foot hair in tying the fly work wonders.

    Keep your eye on the pole. I find that turning the camera a quarter turn so I'm seeing my avatar in 3/4 profile is key for me. Even if I'm not fully paying attention I'll almost aways see the pole move. Also, have a good book handy (although I like to make sure it's one I've read before so I don't give all my attention to it and miss a fish) helps pass the time while you watch the pole

    The only important thing is to equip Erebrandir's horseshoe. Or his otherhorseshoe will do, too.

    Making sure your shadow doesn't scare the fish.
