Wherever rivers and lakes exist, an abundant source of food exists also. These bodies of water are invariably teeming with fish and other aquatic life, all who sit nicely below most of us on the food chain. Of course, it is very difficult to go in and try to grab some of them by hand (admit it, we've all tried.) In order to catch these tasty morsels, one must apply certain tactics, honed over the years into an art form. Using nets, spears, and even hooks with bait on them are many of the ways one can catch fish and other water creatures. Luck, of course, can play a role in the process, but even more so does skill. Having a proper fishing rod will also yield better results than trying to forage your environment for sticks and bark for the purpose.
