How Do You Get a Fishing Pole in Harvest Moon Light?

Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is a classic farming simulation game that has players managing their own farm, tending to crops and livestock, and engaging in a variety of activities around town. One of those activities is fishing, which allows players to make money by catching rare species of fish and selling them.

In order to do this, however, players need to have a fishing pole. So, how do you get a fishing pole in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope?

Buying a Fishing Pole

The easiest way to get a fishing pole in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is to simply buy one. Fishing poles can be purchased at the General Store in the town square for 800G. Once purchased, it can be used immediately and is stored in the player’s inventory for future use.

Crafting a Fishing Pole

Players with higher levels of skill can also craft their own fishing pole. To craft one, the required materials are two pieces of wood and one piece of string.

Wood can be gathered from trees around town or from stumps found on the beach and string can be found by completing requests from villagers or by harvesting crops like flax or cotton. Once all materials are collected, take them to the Workbench at the General Store and craft a fishing pole for free!


Getting a fishing rod in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is easy – just buy one at the General Store or craft one using materials found around town! With your new rod in hand you’ll be ready to head out on your next fishing adventure!
