To catch a specific type of fish in Genshin Impact, you will need to equip your fishing rods with the proper bait. The best bait for catching any Koi fish is the Fake Fly Bait which you can craft after obtaining the formula from Nantuck, the angler of the Mondstadt Fishing Association for 3 Medaka fish. After learning the recipe, you can craft 10 Fake Fly Bait by combining 1 Sakura Bloom and 1 Horsetail.

I have been into gaming since the days of Sega Mega Drive and Amiga. Over the years in gaming, I have raided at a high level, completed rare achievements, coached other players, and written about games since 2016. Whether it’s been clicking heads; developing cities, colonies, and empires; or commanding parties of adventurers; I’ve always prided myself on being able to understand the underlying mechanics of games. Outside of gaming, I enjoy a variety of activities and hobbies, including playing with my pup Astra, working out, as well as crafting, painting, and leatherwork.
