About this mod

Replaces barbaric torture of aquatic life with a scientifically-proven method of fish acquisition.

Permissions and credits
Skewering live invertebrates on barbed hooks in order to trick unsuspecting marine life into snagging their jowls on those hooks and being forcibly ripped from their natural habitat in a macabre game of tug-of-war is barbaric, primitive, and downright cruel.

Also, it has been scientifically proven that there is a better way. I'd explain the process myself, but I could never do as good a job as this video documentary:

That's what this mod does, literally.

To perform the above proven method of fish acquisition, simply press the customizable hotkey (default g). No fishing rod needed!

Finally a non-violent, scientifically-proven means of acquiring fish in Valheim! You're welcome :)

Now with weeeeeeee sound and actual fish flying!

You can turn off the sounds and adjust the fish jump arc in the config file.

To change the settings, edit the file BepInEx/config/aedenthorn.HereFish.cfg (created after running the game once with this mod) using a text editor.

You can adjust the config values in-game using the Config Manager.

To reload the config, type herefishy reset into the console (F5) and hit enter.


To install this mod, the easiest way is to just use Vortex, the Nexus Mods mod manager. It should take care of all dependencies.

To install manually, place the dll file in the BepInEx/plugins folder. You will need BepInEx.
