How to Fish
Well, i must first be the bearer of bad news. You do not immediately start the game with this feature unlocked. Across some areas you might see a sign with a fish on it, which teases the feature. But you do not truly unlock it untill around two hours into the game, and it is slightly hidden.
Step 1: find the fairy village
In order to even get the feature, you need to get the fairy village, as this is where the npc who gives you the fishing rod is.
Step 2: Follow the elevators down to the fishing pond
This is quite a long series of very slow elevators so patience is needed, but trust me its worth it!
Step 3: Talk to the fairy at the pond and enjoy your new gift from god!
Now you have truly ascended in life. May your finds be plentiful and be worth lots of munnies.
