A Fish Drying Rack can be obtained by:
- Completing the "Fishing Pole Collection" for the Museum
- Complete Something Fishy quest
- Winning one in a festival minigame
It can then be crafted on a Workbench.
Open the Fish Drying Rack interface and place up to 1 full stack (50) of fish inside the top input slot.
After 24 hours of in-game time, the stack of fish will be consumed and turn into a stack of one of 5 types of dried fish, depending on the original fish inserted (see table below). The new stack of dried fish will appear in the section below the input slot, and can be removed manually.
The Fish Drying Rack can only dry up to 1 full stack at a time, but has an internal inventory buffer that can store multiple completed stacks, which can be left inside while drying new items. Once a dried stack is taken out, it cannot be put back in.
All non-rare fish that can be caught with a Fishing Pole can be dried. However currently there are no dried versions of Gold Dipped Molly Fish, Clown Fish, Royal Blue Fish, Spotted Fish, Jellyfish, or Shellfish.
- Dried Molly shares an in-game icon with Dried Damsel, but they are different items with different prices.
