Examine Useful for catching sardine or herring

A Fishing Rod is an item used with fishing bait to catch raw sardines, raw herring, and raw pike at "net / bait" fishing spots. Different fish can be caught along a river than at a seacoast. Players need to have at least level 5 Fishing to use it.

Raw giant carp is caught during the Fishing Contest quest by using red vine worms as bait to win the contest.

During the Hero's Quest, the player uses blamish oil on the fishing rod to turn it into an oily fishing rod in order to catch a raw lava eel.
