LEGO Fortnite How To Craft The Rare Fishing Rod

A guide to the materials and process for making the Rare Fishing Rod in the new Gone Fishin’ update for LEGO Fortnite

Once you start searching for the higher rarity fish species, you’ll want a Rare Fishing Rod to do it with, in LEGO Fortnite. This guide is for the Rare Fishing Rod’s unlock and recipe, and even some tips on acquiring the harder to come by ingredients among them.


LEGO Fortnite How To Craft The Rare Fishing Rod

This level 3 Fishing Rod needs nothing more than Flexwood Rod in your inventory, and a level 3 Crafting Bench to put everything together, in order to unlock the recipe. As for the ingredients themselves, you will need 1 Drawstring, 3 Flexwood Rod, 2 Wool Thread, and 3 Sand Claw.

If you’ve forgotten how to get the latter, here’s a quick reminder:

Desert Wolves drop these as loot on being killed in the Dry Valley or desert biome.

Flexwood Rods are made by putting 1 Flexwood into the Lumber Mill, at a ratio of one to one.

Wool Thread comes from refining Wool at a Spinning Wheel, also one for one.

Lastly, Drawstring is made at the Spinning Wheel by twisting 5 Cord for each Drawstring.




LEGO Fortnite How To Use The Rare Fishing Rod

You can just walk on over to the edge of any body of water and cast your line to start fishing. The Rare Fishing Rod will hook any number of things from under the water, not just fish, including Vine, Wood, and even the occasional Llama.

Upgrading your Fishing Rod rarity primarily raises its durability, and catch speed. It also slightly increases your chances of catching fish over junk, as well as rarity of the fish itself (not to be confused with species of the fish) which benefits from a minimum Fishing Rod rarity.

In order to speed up the rate at which you catch a bite even further and guarantee that you always hook fish rather than items, you can try fishing at the four different types of fishing holes, which are the colored circles in the water. While they can naturally occur in your world if you’re lucky, if you aren’t, you can also toss out Bait Buckets of a given rarity into the water and make your very own fishing hole.

The combination of the right Fishing Rod rarity and the right Bait Bucket rarity can almost guarantee a higher chance to hook the right Fish rarity, if you’re aiming for something in particular, but bear in mind that biome and location also play a major role in Fish species.
