A simple wooden fishing rod with titanium fittings.


Fishing Rod is a tool used to catch fish which is crafted at a Foraging Table.

It can catch fish in both ocean and arctic planets, but cannot be cast into oceans on toxic or magma planets. Those biomes require the upgraded version, Durable Fishing Rod.

Fishing rods can be augmented with upgraded rods and lures. These can sometimes be found as treasure from uncommon, rare and legendary fish, and are applied directly to the rod by selecting the augment in inventory and right clicking the rod to apply it to. Equipped augments can be viewed in the fishing rod tooltip.

All rods start with a Basic Lure and a Basic Rod equipped.


  • Version 1.1.0: Changed name from 'Old Rod' to 'Fishing Rod', implemented in game
