Generally I enjoy fishing, both irl and in games. Sadly Minecraft fishing is a bit dull. There's only 4 fish, two of them cookable, and the rest is either junk or treasure loot. This datapack aims to change that. With new fishing rods, fish variants by biome, fish size variants, and revamped loot and junk tables, I'm proud of this datapack's ability to make fishing more interesting.



Notes:
- You need to uninstall this datapack properly before you remove it.

does this work in some way with other datapacks that interfere with the fishing loot table?

Hi, I have been trying to cook a fish in the cooking pan but i cant get it to work. I also have your better farming pack and i cannot create the countertop. I have the API installed and i cant figure out why it isnt working.

If you place it ontop of a furnace that has fuel in it then it should work once you've thrown the item onto it.

The countertop you just throw one gunpower and one smooth stone in the same location and it will craft itself

Thank you for consulting me, I appreciate it when ppl rather work through the issues instead of just get annoyed with the datapack and give it up.
