I've posted this idea on the official feedback idea page but it was deleted without a trace or to a reason why but anyways here it goes! Almost everything you catch in fishing can be crafted or earn in easy different way for instance enchantments can be earned from villages or Enchanment tables or fish can be earned from killing fish or Dolphins.
As I was playing my latest world I decided to go fishing But it felt kinda bland to me. But what if we had exclusive items that could be only caught from fishing!
For instance there should be a new wood type called dead wood where it looks competely rooten and has holes on it. You then can craft rotten planks and rotten doors, rotten pressure plates, ext. Which all blocks and items crafted from rotten wood will have holes as well.
(I dont know if this is a good idea) about There should also a new armor set that you can only get from fishing it only gives two full armor protection but every armor piece worn will give one extra air bubble and 0.2 quicker swimming speed underwater. Also when the amour is caught its going to damaged a little. Another exclusive item is a new torch item.
This would be called the underwater torch but the twist about this is torch can only be used underwater and not on land. There could be underwater campfires as well. Another item is a bow enchantment where if used on a bow the bow is able to shoot arrows underwater fullspeed! I have another idea with catching broken lamps but this is a good start.
