Where Do I Get a Fishing Rod in RuneScape?

If you’re looking to get your hands on a fishing rod in RuneScape, there are several ways to do so. One of the easiest ways is to simply purchase one from the Grand Exchange.

You can find a variety of fishing rods there, ranging from basic bronze rods all the way up to the rare and powerful dragon harpoon. The Grand Exchange is also a great place to buy bait, which will come in handy when trying to catch fish.

You can also craft your own fishing rod at level 10 Fishing. All you need is a knife and some logs (any type).

With these materials, you can craft yourself a basic fishing rod. Higher level rods such as the fly fishing rod and barbarian rod require additional materials.

If crafting isn’t an option for you, you can try searching for them in other areas of RuneScape. Many NPCs will sell basic fishing rods, so if you’re looking for something more affordable than what’s available on the Grand Exchange then this could be your best bet.

Finally, if you’re feeling lucky then why not try your hand at treasure trails? Clue scrolls are rewards from various activities throughout RuneScape and they contain cryptic clues that must be solved in order to receive the reward. If you manage to complete enough clue scrolls then eventually one of them will contain a reward in the form of a fishing rod.


No matter what type of fishing rod you’re looking for in RuneScape, there’s sure to be an option that fits your needs. Whether it’s purchasing one from the Grand Exchange, crafting one yourself with some logs and a knife, searching through various NPCs around RuneScape or taking on clue scrolls with hopes of finding one as a reward; there’s sure to be an option that works for everyone!
