    We have fishing in dungeons why not in the swamp areas. Make it hand fishing where you wear special hand fishing gloves instead of using a fishing pole. Plus to hand fish you will have to have fishing, and also wrestling. The higher the wrestling better control on landing a better sized fish.

    What would we wrestle? What could be caught besides gators? Perhaps a new type of frog or a fresh water garr? For those you'd want to use a three-pronged pole that is used somewhat like a javelin.

    Purple/Pink pot fishing. Higher your alky and the more you imbue from your still the more your catch per toss.

    Noodlin is illegal except for in the "redneck" areas of UO.

    Didn't there used to be very small spots of water that you could fish in? Seems like I found one in the Lost Lands once.

    I think the show from the previously "educational" block of shows that would work best in UO is hoarders. Maybe we could have little beauty pageant goblins like honey boo boo as pets you could raise.

    It's Called noodleing. Well in the back bayou we get shrimp in what is swamp waters that can be as low as a few inches to many feet deep. Gators is the least of your worries! There are fish there with a jaw full of steak knives! not to mention the snapping turtles, loggerheads, and bull sharks. I have even seen great whites in the mississippi just south of Belle Chase, near port sulphor. Yes I lived down there in the area... Clams, shrimp, catfish, you name it could be added to fishing for cooking... etc. As the lady said its an idea.

    I think it would be really fun to add alternative fishing related activities... noodling, crawdad trapping, clam digging, etc.

    Be cute to throw in a crawdad trap in a swamp and have it spawn an albino giant alligator boss on rare occasions and things like normal gators, snakes, etc periodically.

    It is Coon skin and Aligator hide, makes a pair of thigh boots just the right size.

    And this is my weapon, and this is my Dragon tooth dagger. One is for killing and the other is for swagger.

    Also seems horder's gathering numbers are way smaller then a collector's gathering numbers. And this is assuming your numbers are based on what is on one shard.

    Lol, River Monsters? That show is awesome, you wouldn't believe the stuff that Jeremy Wade pulls out of supposedly "safe" rivers/lakes. Really reinforces the fact that as soon as we step foot in water, we're no longer at the top of the food chain. I laugh every time someone says "You have a higher chance of being struck by lightning than attacked by a shark", then i tell them that every shark attack victim said the same thing before they got in the water...
    In the last episode i saw, he discovered an entirely new subspecies of Arapaima that scientists didn't know about before.

    Yes I agree very awesome show Im waiting for the next season to start.
    Season 5 episode 1 Killer Guppies swimming in your fresh water, do not let their cuteness fool you their evil. Jeremy Wade will also be showing off his new toothpick n thread fishing pool to reel these evil killer guppies in.
    One I like the most is the giant sting ray one.
