A fishing rod is used to catch fish. Fishing is an activity initiated anytime you step onto a dock by a pond. A Toon can collect many different types of fish. Fishing rods are only usable on docks. A new type of fishing rod will be available in Clarabelle's Cattlelog after the previous fishing rod has been purchased (for example: In order to be able to purchase the Steel Rod, a Toon must have had purchased the Hardwood Rod).
When fishing, each cast costs jellybeans, depending on what type of rod you own.
- Twig Rod - one jellybean
- Bamboo Rod - two jellybeans
- Hardwood Rod - three jellybeans
- Steel Rod - four jellybeans
- Gold Rod - five jellybeans
With each new rod, a Toon can collect better fish. The following are all types of fishing rods:
