Fishing is one of the five gathering skills players can choose on FantasyRP. Players can fish in any number of locations around the map (rivers, lakes, ocean etc.). The main focus, or goal, of the fisher, is to cast their fishing rods out into the water to fish up special fish, or items. They have a large amount of custom fish and drops that can be achieved.
Fish have different qualities, and different qualities have varying chances of being fished up and alongside this, they have different experience values.
Experience Rates of each rarity
Fish are unique to specific biomes, so you can get different types of fish dependent on the biome that you're currently fishing in.

What are the perks?
As a gathering profession, the passive perks from gaining experience is a chance at additional drops or the chance at rolling a loot table for exclusive items.
Fishers have a chance to gain additional fish drops from the fishing. As well as this they have access to a larger pool of fish that can be acquired, as non-fishers can only acquire common fishes. Finally, they have a chance to roll from an extensive loot table.
The rate of increase (up until Level 100) for the chance of gaining a drop from its loot table:
Relation to other professions:
Chef: A lot of the fish & junk (such as elven bowls, or coconuts) acquired by being a fisher can be used in various different chef dishes.
Engineering: Fish oil is created by engineers, this is a harder to obtain item that is used as a requisite to craft higher level items as dragonwood (which is used for weapons, bows and high tier fishing rods) but must be treated before it can be used to craft.
