Weirs are artificial obstructions in rivers, lakes and shores that trap fish to make them easier to catch. Medieval Europeans used weirs extensively. Many were destroyed to ease navigation but some are still in existence, especially near canal networks.

This mod adds two types of weirs, a round fish-trap type and a linear type. The round weir works by luring fish into the cage which they then have difficulty escaping. The linear weir directs fish toward the fisher. The linear one can be placed on either bank but the dock should be on the "upriver" side (whichever you consider upriver).

Weirs appear under a new menu item, "Fisher's Hut and Weirs" which combines them with the Fisher's Hut.

Place the weir so that the two poles holding the dock up are just in the water. Depending on the steepness of the bank, there may not be enough dock space for a fisher to stand. Or, you may find that a builder never comes because they cannot get to the dock. In either case, delete the weir and try re-placing it.

You can add decorative extensions to your weir but don't block the entire channel if you also have fishing boats that need to get by.

hello, today i was placed the right bank weir and my villagers got stuck in there, even after deleting the bank weir !

Try building a staircase (Stone Gate Set V5) or something that people have to walk on, on top of the stuck person. That might free them up (it worked for me in one situation).

They look cool, but they don't fit shores with shallow incline

This should now be fixed as of version 1.0.5, weirs should work with steep or shallow banks.
