From A Wiki in the Desert

This is a summary table of all fish discovered in A Tale in the Desert 10. Fish are a Resource that can be obtained via the Fly Fishing skill and are used in Cooking.

In order to catch fish, you need to have learned the Fly Fishing skill at a School of Body. When you purchase the skill, the scientists will give you a Basic Fly Rod.

Fly Tying must be learned from a School of Worship to create Lures. When you have a Fly Rod equipped and are near water, a new gathering button will appear. Above the new button is another button to show your current lure and allow you to equip a different one. You must have a lure equipped to fish.

All freshly caught fish will go under the Whole Fish category in your inventory, labeled "<Fish type> (weight in db)" if a special fish and with just the fish type otherwise, for instance "Abdju" or "Horned Pigfish (16 db)". They all weight 1 db and take 20 bulk in your inventory.
