To get ahold of the R1 Polearm, you need to check which types of fish you will need to exchange for The Catch. The fish required by Momiji include 3 Raimei Angelfish, 20 Golden Koi, and 20 Rusty Koi.

But before catching each fish, you need to get acquainted with the baits that correspond with each type. The bait includes:

  • Fruit Paste Bait for Medaka and all small fish.
  • Redrot Bait for pointy fish.
  • False Worm Bait for Angler fish.
  • Fake Fly Bait for Pufferfish and Koi fish.

To catch Raimei Angelfish, spawn on the waypoint located on the extreme right of Tatarasuna. From there, take a Waverider and head towards the location marked on the image below.

Rusty Koi and Golden Koi can be found scattered all over Teyvat. The places where you can get these kinds of fish include:

  • Under the broken bridge in the middle of Mingyun Village and Guili Plains.
  • Near the Guizang Formula domain on Luhua Pools.
  • On the coast just opposite of the Wangshu Inn, towards Jueyun Karst.
  • Beside the bridge connecting the Whispering Woods to Mondstadt.
  • Near the Starfell Lake waypoint.

You can follow the official Teyvat Interactive Map for a more detailed location on all the fish across Teyvat.

To max refine The Catch, you will need four additional Ako's Sake Vessels. Each of these refinement materials requires 3 Raimei Angelfish, 10 Pufferfish, and 10 Bitter Pufferfish.

After an entire area has been cleared, all the fish tend to take more than a day to spawn. So you can either visit a friend's world and repeat the route, or wait until they spawn in your world again.
