Fish Net

Usage Edit

The fish net is used to catch and store mobs that live in water (with the exception of crabs). It is also required to tame certain mobs. You can use a fish net by right clicking on the mob that can caught in a fish net (see below) and then it will be caught, and the net will drop onto the ground. To release the caught mob, right-click on a solid block with it.

Currently, the following mobs can be caught with a fish net:
