If you are already in water, you can just use the 'fish' command. For fishing from a beach or the edge of water, you can specify a direction to fish where the water may be found. When you are fishing, you will have access to several commands that can influence fish behavior. You can: 'bob' to attract more interest from fish. May scare off any nibblers present.
