How to make a fishing rod in Minecraft

Yes, yes, very nice, but... how do I get the fishing rod? Well, this is not the easiest thing in the world, let me explain it in parts.


If you have come as far as to be interested in fishing, surely you already have the work table, if not, I will explain it easily. If you already know everything or have a work table, continue to the next point.

The workbench is perhaps one of the most basic and necessary elements of the game, since it is the tool with which you can create and finish any item. In other words, having the ingredients to make an item but not having access to a crafting table. crafting (as it is also known) is like having nothing.

Seeing that the work table is totally essential, let's see how to make it.

  1. Go to the forest and cut down trees, you can do it with an ax or by hand. This can be done at the beginning of the game, without any items.
  2. Turn the wooden logs you get into wooden blocks (using your inventory).
  3. Now just use your inventory (or another workbench) to craft the item. you will only have to place 4 wooden blocks of any kind.
  4. Depending on the type of wood, the work table can be of different colors.
  5. And that's it, with the artboard done, you have the freedom to do almost anything.

And now we come to the good part, the ingredients to create a fishing rod are: three sticks and two threads (Obtained from cobwebs).

How to get the sticks

This is another of the easiest elements to make, you only need two blocks of wood. To make a stick you can manage with your inventory, you don't need a workbench. To make sticks, just put 2 wooden blocks (one on top of the other) and you're done.

How to get the cobwebs

This ingredient might be a bit harder to get, you'll be able to find the cobwebs directly in caves and underground passages. Also if you come across a spider and defeat it, it will drop webs. So it's a bit of work but it's not that hard, just keep an eye out when you're mining.

The fishing rod recipe

Well, you already have the 3 sticks and the 2 spider webs, now all you have to do is arrange them on the work table.

  1. Start by placing the 3 sticks diagonally, from the lower left square to the upper right.
  2. then place the 2 cobwebs in the remaining squares in the right column.
  3. Finally alone pick up your fishing rod in the product box and equip it, you are ready to fish.

If you liked this fishing, you can do it in a much more fun way: With a boat! Of course, it is not the same to fish from the boring mainland. A boat is ideal if you are looking to improve the experience.
