How Do You Cast a Fishing Pole in Twilight Princess?

If you are an avid fan of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, then you know that one of the most important skills in the game is learning how to cast a fishing pole. Fishing is a major part of the game, as it can provide you with valuable resources, like hearts and rupees. And while it may seem intimidating at first, learning how to cast your fishing pole in Twilight Princess is actually quite easy.

To begin casting your fishing pole in Twilight Princess, you will first need to make sure that you have all the necessary equipment. You will need a rod, bait (which can be purchased from any local shop), and some sort of lure (like a bug or a lure). Once you have all three items in hand, you’re ready to start casting your line.

The first step to casting your fishing line is finding a suitable spot in the water. You should look for an area with plenty of fish and avoid any areas with strong currents or rocks which could snag your line. Once you’ve found a suitable spot, press ‘A’ on your controller and Link will cast his line into the water.

Once Link has cast his line into the water, press ‘A’ again and he will begin reeling it back in. As he reels it back in, keep an eye out for any fish that might be swimming by and press ‘A’ once more when one appears on screen to try and catch it. When successful, Link will pull the fish into his boat and you can then proceed to collect it from there.


Casting a fishing pole in Twilight Princess may seem daunting at first but with practice and patience anyone can become an expert fisherman! With just a few simple steps—finding a suitable spot in the water, pressing ‘A’ on your controller to cast your line, pressing ‘A’ again when a fish appears—you can easily catch some valuable resources like hearts or rupees.
