We are in the process of transferring the hosting and maintenance responsibilities of the wiki from Chucklefish to ConcernedApe, which is why the wiki will temporarily be hosted at stardewcommunitywiki.com. Soon the official wiki will resume at stardewvalleywiki.com and will be hosted going forward by ConcernedApe. Prior to the transfer to ConcernedApe we will update this site with the date on which the transfer will occur.

The Barbed Hook is a Tackle, that helps fishing by keeping the fishing bar attached to the catch. It can be purchased from Willy's Fish Shop for 1,000g, or crafted. It can also be won from the Festival of Ice. It may randomly appear in the Traveling Cart's stock for 1,500-2,500g.
You must have an Iridium Rod to equip tackle. To attach tackle to an Iridium Rod, left-click on the tackle, then right-click on the Iridium Rod. To remove Tackle, first right-click to remove any bait, then right-click to remove the tackle.
The Barbed Hook is not used in any bundles.
The Barbed Hook is not used in any quests.
- You can move the fishing bar while a Barbed Hook is in use, although it is more difficult, especially with slower fish. The more the fish darts up and down, the easier it is to move the fishing bar manually, and the less effective the Barbed Hook is.
- Crafting and selling a Barbed Hook is 70g more profitable than selling 1 Copper Bar, 1 Iron Bar, and 1 Gold Bar, unless you have the Blacksmith Profession.
