Skill TS4 Fishing
Fishing is a skill in The Sims 4 that comes with a collection of fish to catch. Sims can develop this skill by fishing from fishing holes or signs. Some locations yield a better chance of obtaining rare objects, plants, or fish.

For instance, Sims can acquire rare fish from Sylvan Glade and Forgotten Grotto; and a fishing spot north of Desert Bloom Park yields a greater chance of finding a cowplant berry or a voodoo doll.

Uses of fishEdit

Keeping fish as petsEdit

Main article: Small pet#The Sims 4

Sims can keep fish in bowls or aquariums. They can be named, but cannot be fed and will never die.

Mounting fish on wallsEdit

Alternatively, fish can be mounted on walls as decoration. They produce a Confident aura of varying strengths, depending on the type of fish.
