HELPFUL TIP:

When planning a cast member's talents and skills, think about how genetics, personality traits (both positive attributes and flaws), past experiences, environment, and the character's roles (within a family, a community, and society) all factor into what strengths may form. These special qualities should tie into the story, not only to make the character interesting but also to help him achieve his goal.
DEFINITION:
The ability to catch fish

DESCRIPTION:
A character with this skill is able to successfully catch fish and other sea- or freshwater faring creatures for sport or food, using a rod and lure, net, trap, projectile, or simply fast reflexes. Fishermen may work on a large commercial boat and use nets and other equipment to catch large hauls, or fish as an individual, both to put food on the table and for enjoyment. There are many types of fishing: catch and release (sport fishing), rod and reel, nets, traps, spear fishing, ice fishing, hand fishing, and fly fishing to name a few. A person can often find fish or other edible creatures in lakes, rivers, streams, and the ocean, making it a good source of food, especially in survival situations.

BENEFICIAL STRENGTHS OR ABILITIES:
Good eyesight and fast reflexes
Strong balance
Knowledge of the environment (be it a river, lake, or ocean, fish and other creatures thrive in certain areas which can shift due to weather, currents, seasons, mating times, etc.)
Boating can be a useful skill (but not necessary)
Upper body strength (if one is a deep sea fisherman)
