How Do You Get a Fishing Pole in Harvest Moon?

If you’re a fan of Harvest Moon, you’ll know that fishing is an integral part of the game. Not only is it a great way to relax and pass the time, but it’s also one of the most profitable activities in the game. However, in order to start fishing, you need to get your hands on a fishing pole.

Fortunately, getting a fishing pole in Harvest Moon isn’t too difficult. The first thing you’ll need to do is head to the beach and speak with Mira, who will be standing next to the dock.

She’ll offer to sell you a fishing pole for 500G – just make sure you have enough money before talking to her! Once purchased, your character will be able to use the fishing pole whenever and wherever they want.

You can also get a free fishing pole by befriending one of the villagers in town. Each villager has their own unique gift that they can give as a sign of friendship – if you’re lucky enough, they might give you a free fishing pole! To increase your chances of receiving one, be sure to talk with them and give them gifts often.

Finally, if all else fails, there’s always the option of purchasing one from Van’s shop at Mineral Town. This store sells many different items related to farming and ranching – including fishing poles! They are slightly more expensive than Mira’s shop (600G), but it’s still an option if you don’t have enough money or don’t want to wait for villagers’ gifts.


To sum up, getting a fishing pole in Harvest Moon is as simple as heading down to Mira’s shop on the beach and buying one for 500G. Alternatively, befriending villagers can lead to free ones being gifted or you can purchase one from Van’s store at Mineral Town for 600G. With any luck and patience, your character will soon have their very own fishing pole!
