Bog Fisher

The Bog Fisher is an ambush predator that attacks boats and creatures in the swamps and slow moving parts of the river. It spears its prey and attempts to drown it or rend it before taking it back to its lair to eat.

They are often found basking in the river, their beak-like mouths protruding from the still water like a rock or other debris. River goblins are quick to spot these predators and have a clever way of avoiding them – loud splashing prior to entering their territory and allowing their canoes to drift will often fool the beasts. Any large vessel has no such hope.
