Fishing Rods (sometimes referred to simply as rods) are a type of tool in the Animal Crossing series and have appeared in every game. They are used when fishing to catch fish in any body of water.

Usage

A fishing rod is the only tool capable of catching and collecting fish, which are recognised as dark fish-shaped shadows seen swimming underneath the surface of different bodies of water, which hold different types of fish. These are; oceans, rivers, holding ponds, tropical seas and waterfalls.

Tortimer's Speech on Golden Rod

Well now, young Ai... I do believe I have something for you. Oh, yepper! It's a love letter... Oh, just take 'er easy! It's not a love letter. It's a Golden Rod. I do believe you've caught every single kind of fish, haven't you? Well, I'm here to congratulate you, sprout! I want you to have this rod... Its current owner no longer has any need of it, in a manner of speaking. It's a very fine rod. Yepper! Even the most unlucky of fishermen will find fishing easier with this feller. I don't dare say this too loudly...but you can't get this anywhere else, get me? Take good care of it, sprout! I enjoy a good evening fish, but I don't do it too often. Can't waste my youth a-fishing! Heh hehh hooorf!
