You can get a fishing rod in Breath of the Wild. There are several ways to obtain one, including purchasing them from merchants or crafting them yourself. Merchants can be found in various towns and villages throughout Hyrule, and they typically sell different types of rods such as bamboo rods or steel rods. If you don’t want to purchase a rod, you can craft your own using materials found in Hyrule. You’ll need two pieces of wood, three monster parts (such as Lizalfos Talons or Hinox Toenails), and two pieces of string to craft a basic rod.

Once you have obtained or crafted a fishing rod, there are plenty of places where you can go fishing. There are many rivers, lakes, and ponds throughout Hyrule that are teeming with fish. You’ll also find plenty of spots along the coastline where you can cast your line for some ocean-dwelling species.
