Wondering how to fish in V Rising? Here's what you need to know.

What's a survival game without a spot of fishing? In V Rising, players awaken as a vampire who needs to prey on nearby human settlements in order to regain their strength and survive. But when you're not causing death and despair, there's a perfect activity available to help you unwind — fishing!

Players will need to following items to craft the fishing rod at the Woodworking Bench:

How to Catch Fish in V Rising

Now that you've crafted your fishing rod, the rest is easy. Simply head to a body of water and look for an area with bubbles forming. Equip the fishing rod and right click on the bubbling area to cast your rod.

When the area starts to glow, left-click to reel the fish out of the water.

V Rising is available now, in early access, on Microsoft Windows. For more on the game check out our other guides:
