To make a Fishing Rod is pretty simple, all you will need is some Sticks & String. In the 3×3 grid of the Crafting Table, place 3 Sticks in a diagonal line from the Bottom Left to the Top Right. Under the Top Right Stick, place two Strings vertically downward, one in each slot. This will make a Fishing Rod in Minecraft. You can get String from Spiders & Sticks from Trees. Now you can take your newly made Fishing Rod and get all of the Fish that you want. Or you could make it more useful. By attaching a Carrot at the end of the Fishing Rod, you can make a Pig mobile. Put a Saddle on the Pig and hold the Fishing Rod with a Carrot in your hand. You can do the same with the Striders but with a Warped Fungus.

Fishing Rods are pretty useful even without their attachments. For instance, you can hook Mobs, Items‌(Java Edition Only), Some Entities, & even Players. The Entities that can be hooked are:

  • Any Falling Block
  • Armor Stands
  • Boats
  • Fireballs
  • Minecarts of any type
  • Primed TNT
  • Shulker Bullets
  • Small Fireballs

This is pretty nifty but it comes at the cost of durability. this was all about making the Fishing Rod in Minecraft. Hopefully, this guide has helped you. You can also check out our other guides like How To Craft A Scaffolding in Minecraft.
