If you want to learn how to catch fish and unlock the Fishing Rod in Hades 2, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s what you need to know.

You’ll want to catch fish in Hades 2 to exchange them for valuable resources with the Broker at the Crossroads. In order to do this, you must first unlock and equip the Fishing Rod to ensure you can catch fish in the first place. The Fishing Rod is one of the four Gathering Tools in Hades 2 required for you to gather specific resources. You must spend specific resources to unlock each one, which you can only find in certain locations. Below, we go over what you need to get to unlock the Fishing Rod to catch fish in Hades 2.

How to Unlock the Fishing Rod in Hades 2

To unlock the Fishing Rod in Hades 2, you must first unlock the ability to use and equip Gathering Tools in the Crossroads. Then, you need to gather Bronze and F-Fabric to unlock the Fishing Rod. After you’ve done this, you can equip the Fishing Rod and use it to catch any fish you come across during a run in Hades 2.

To unlock Gathering Tools, you must unlock the Night’s Craftwork Incantation with 1 Moly at the Cauldron in the Crossroads. Moly is an easily attainable resource and can be found as a normal pickup in Erebus. Once unlocked, head over to the Silver Pool area at the Crossroads and select the “Rod of Fishing” in the menu. You’ll need the following to unlock it:

  • 1 Bronze
    • You can only obtain Bronze with a Crescent Pick later in the Surface area in Hades 2.
      • To access the Surface, you must perform the Permeation of Witching-Wards Incantation to break the ward and head up the stairs in the Crossroads. Then, you need to perform the Unraveling a Fateful Bond Incantation to ensure your survival once there. However, this process may take a while, as you’ll need late-game items to perform these Incantations.
  • 2 F-Fabric
    • The easiest way of obtaining F-Fabric is by trading with the Wretched Broker at the Crossroads. You can purchase it for 60 Bones.

After you have gathered the necessary materials, you can unlock and equip the Fishing Rod and start catching some fish.
