The Ancient Egyptians fished from papyrus boats, on the Nile. They used nets, traps,pens and harpoons. The nets,traps and pens were made from woven willow branches, later fish…ing with rods and fish hooks made of bone were used. They were also one of the earliest cultures to indulge in fishing as a leisure activity.

Basically because without the Nile there would be no Egypt as we know it, only desert. The Nile encouraged settlement and cultures because it gave life in the form of water f…or, amongst other things, drinking, crops and transport.
Many cities were formed along the nile, stretching over miles. It also happenes to be the only river that runs up stream not down. It allowed for commerce to flow from city to… city along it's banks, hence it connected the Egyptians. (Chnchila)
