Fishing Hut

Fishing books (also called "scrapbooks") are photo collections of each type of fish the players have caught.

Players can see their scrapbooks and other players' by tapping on the fisherman's hut.


Appearance

Fishing book cover

All fishing books appear to have the same cover, with a faded brown cover and a photo of Angus with a mysterious character (assumed to be the player's uncle). When the book is opened, the player can see two pages of the book each with two fish types. The player will not see photos for any fish they have not previously caught, however he or she will be able to see both the photo and medals earned by catching the fish.


Adding a new photo to the book

Fishing book inside

When fishing with lures, every fish players catch is photographed and weighed:

  • If the fish they caught is from a new species, it is added to their uncle's fishing book
  • If it is in a new weight category, then a bronze, silver, gold, platinum fish medal will appear next to the photo of the fish.

In addition to the photo of the fish, the book also notes the types of lures (2 types at most) the fish can be caught with, and the weight of the player's biggest catch.

  • four diamonds for extremely big catches (fish in the platinum category).

Players will notice the picture of the fish in the scrapbook will be flashing if there is a reward to be collected.


Did you know?

  • The "hidden" saying under the lures of the fish you haven't yet caught is by America's 31st president, Herbert Hoover: Fishing is much more than fish. It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers.
  • While weight units may change depending on the language players have chosen, actual measures are not converted: for example, a 12-pound fish translates to a 12-kilo fish even though pounds do not weight the same as kilos in real life.
