Cave fishers are monsters in ADOM. Like all spiders, cave fishers spin webs; but their attacks do not poison. They can also be summoned en masse by dark elven spellcasting monsters. Since many of them are generated by summoners and thus killed in large numbers throughout the game, swarms of high level cave fishers can be a nuisance in the late game.

Corpse effects[]

Dark elves enjoy eating cave fishers, while PCs of all other races vomit and become poisoned after eating them. Even so, all PCs have a high chance of gaining intrinsic poison resistance from eating a corpse.

Monster memory[]

The cave fisher is a large insect that looks like part spider, part lobster. Its body is covered with thick plates and it has eight legs. It stands on the rear six and tries to grabs its victim with the front two. It likes to lay out many webs in the dungeon, sucking the blood from those creatures who are dumb enough to get stuck in them.
