This is unlocked when you catch your twentieth fish. You use your pod to fish. There are no fishing rods, lines, reels, bait, lures, etc. in the game. You can check your fishing progress in your stats.

First, buy the HUD Fishing Spot chip from the supply trader. You will then get a notification when you can fish along with the prompts. Press and hold cn_B to begin fishing. You can use the analog sticks to position the reticle to the point where you want to cast. Then press cn_A to cast. You reel in with a simple press of the cn_A button. There are no fancy wrangling mechanics. Normally, you reel in when the pod is pulled below the surface. Sometimes, you can catch a fish like a carp, without the pod being submerged but this is the exception. If the pod does not go under after a few seconds, reel it in and try at a slightly different spot.

A number of fish can be caught in the stream that goes through the ruined city. It ends up in a waterfall into a ravine. You can also fish in the ravine. It requires some jumping but there's an elevator to the right of the wooden bridge. You have to jump through the waterfall on the right to a ledge and carefully follow it until you can't continue in that direction. Turn back towards the bridge and, carefully, make your way. In a very short while, the only way to continue will be to jump down to a ledge below you. You won't be able to see the elevator but once you get on the ledge it is just to the interior. It may be a little easier to get to approaching from the other direction. Take a right at the wooden bridge and go as far as you can. Double back and make your way carefully down to the ledge with the elevator. However, you get to the elevator, take it down to the bottom where there will be some enemies waiting for you. The fishing place is to the left of the elevator as you get out. When you are finished, come back the way you came. If you are in no hurry to get this achievement, later in the game, there is a more convenient way of getting to the ravine because the terrain changes.

When you first go to the desert, if you go left hugging the wall to your left, you will reach an oil pond with a save point. There are several varieties of fish there. In chapter 4, you have to go through the sewers. You can fish in the sewers although you will find more debris, like tires, batteries, & gas cylinders than fish. However, they all count as fish. There is also a weapon to be fished for--an iron pipe. It is one of the 39 weapons you must collect so it is important but does not count as a fish. If you are diligent, you can get 20 different variety of fish, at this point, to include the rarer fish like the mackerel machine in the desert oil pond or the fur carp in the ravine.

If you are missing a couple of fish, still in chapter 4, after the boss encounter, you can fish off the bridge leading to the castle in the amusement park. Looking at the castle, I have had more success fishing off the right than the left. If you fish these five locations, you should be able to get the 20 fish you need for the achievement. Debris in the water like batteries, gas cylinders, and broken firearms count as fish.

There is an advantage to fishing. You can sell the fish for a fair amount of gold. However, if you don't want to spend a lot of time fishing early on, the Flooded City later in the game has the largest number of varieties of fish.

Note: If you don't like to fish, this is one of the achievements available for sale at the secret achievement shop. This special shop becomes available after three playthroughs. This achievement can be purchased with 50,000 gold.
