To craft the Fishing Pole, you’ll need a few bits of string and a couple of long sticks. Fortunately, you can find all these materials in the forest easily. Once you have the Fishing Pole, you’ll need to determine what type of fish you want to catch and what bait they require.

Each type of bait can attract multiple types of fish, depending on whether it’s day or night. Bait can range from insects to small creatures, so keep an eye out for them!
