Fishing Rod

Rate this post

The Fishing Rod is a new tool that appears for the first time in Far Cry 5. Like hunting, fish you catch can be sold for money at any store.

The following section needs to be cleaned up to conform to a higher standard, as it is possibly too long, too detailed, lacking objectivity, unclear, or lacks citations.

For information on how to fish, where to find fish, which lures to use, and related quests, see Fishing.
