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.

Training Rod

It's a lot easier to use than other rods, but can only catch basic fish.
Previous Tier: N/A
Next Tier: Bamboo Pole
Cost: Gold.png25g

Sold by: Fish Shop

The Training Rod is a special tool used to catch fish. It can be purchased for Gold.png25g from Willy's Fish Shop if the player has difficulty with the fishing minigame. It effectively sets the player's fishing skill equal to level 5 for the purposes of determining how big to make the green bar.

The Training Rod can catch only basic fish, and does not allow the use of Bait or Tackle. Additionally, it is impossible to catch silver/gold/iridium quality fish with the Training Rod. However, fish caught with the Training Rod grant the same XP as with any other fishing rod. They also count towards Achievements and the Fish Collection.

It is possible to collect fishing treasure chests with the Training Rod.

Anchovy, Bream, Bullhead, Carp, Chub, Green Algae, Herring, Perch, Rainbow Trout, Red Snapper, Sardine, Sea Cucumber, Seaweed, Shad, Smallmouth Bass, Sunfish, Walleye, White Algae
