It has been suggested that this article should be split into Fishing Rod.
Reason: Different model, different name, probably enough to warrant similar page similar to Sturdy Stick? It previously was separate page, see the discussion

PlushSpiffo.pngThis article is about the spawned, non-crafted fishing rod. For the crafted fishing rod, see Fishing Rod (crafted).

A fishing rod is a fishing tool and a makeshift weapon.

Usage

Fishing

Main article: Fishing

A fishing rod requires some kind of bait, such as fishing tackle or worm. The player can fish by walking up to a body of water, right-clicking on it and selecting the "Fishing" option.

Fishing lines can also sometimes break and need to be replaced.

Weapon

The fishing rod can hit up to 2 enemies at a time (with multi-hit enabled), dealing a maximum of 0.3 damage to enemies (unless a critical hit) from up to 1.55 tiles away at an attack speed of 1.3. Unlike crafted fishing rod, the fishing rod without line can still be used as a weapon after the line breaks.

Crafting

This fishing rod cannot be crafted, it can only be repaired if the line breaks, requiring either the "Fisherman" occupation or "Angler" trait during character creation, otherwise, reading the Angler USA Magazine Vol. 1. There is also a fishing rod that can be crafted with a stick.

This section may be in need of improvement.
This table is for the crafted rod, replace w/something including the rod without line?

Condition

While fishing, the line can break, leaving a "Fishing Rod without Line", and will need to be crafted again. This is unrelated to the durability of the item, where the rod/stick will break, rather than the line.

The fishing rod has a maximum condition of 3, with a degradation rate influenced by the long blunt and maintenance skills. The chance of losing durability can be simplified to the following formula: 1 in (1 + maintenanceMod × 2). Where "maintenanceMod" is calculated using the long blunt and maintenance skills.
Below is an example of the chance of losing durability at varying levels of the maintenance and long blunt skills.

For how this is calculated, see: Condition
Maintenance level Long blunt level Condition lower chance Average condition
0 0 1/1 (100%) 3
0 4 1/3 (33%) 9
0 8 1/5 (20%) 15
4 0 1/5 (20%) 15
8 0 1/9 (11%) 27
4 4 1/7 (14%) 21
4 8 1/9 (11%) 27
8 8 1/13 (8%) 39
10 10 1/15 (7%) 45

Distribution

The loot distributions can be found in the table(s) below.

FishingRod distribution Show / Hide
Effective chance calculations are based off of default loot settings, and median zombie density. The higher the density of zombies in an area, the higher the effective chance of an item spawning. Chance is also influenced by the lucky and unlucky traits.
