Getting a fishing rod in Animal Crossing can be an exciting way to enjoy your time in the game. Not only can you catch fish, but you can also use your fishing rod to collect items such as shells, seaweed and trash.
To get a fishing rod in Animal Crossing, you will need to speak with Tom Nook at the Resident Services building. He will give you the ability to craft a fishing rod using five pieces of hardwood and one string. After crafting your fishing rod, it will be ready to use right away.
The hardwood needed for crafting a fishing rod can be obtained by shaking trees that have been marked with an axe. You may find hardwood pieces lying on the ground around the island as well.
Once you have enough hardwood pieces, return to Resident Services and speak with Tom Nook again. He will help you craft the fishing rod with the materials that you have gathered.
The string for crafting a fishing rod is obtained by talking to Pascal, a sea otter who randomly appears on your island. When he appears, he will ask if he can trade something from his inventory in exchange for a piece of scallop or other item from your inventory. In exchange, he’ll give you one piece of string.
Getting a fishing rod in Animal Crossing is easy once you know what materials are needed and where they come from. You need five pieces of hardwood and one piece of string to craft a fishing rod at Resident Services with Tom Nook’s help. The hardwood is obtained by shaking trees marked with an axe and the string is obtained by trading with Pascal when he randomly appears on your island.
