  • Common Crafting Bench – 3 Wood + 5 Granite
  • Uncommon Crafting Bench – 3 Shell + 8 Plank
  • Rare Crafting Bench – 3 Sand Shell + 6 Sand Claw + 12 Knotroot = 15 Marble Slab

Once you have crafted your Fishing Rod you can interact with any body of water. The rod will show when you can reel in your catch by holding down (not just tapping!) the interact button again. Any fish you catch can be used in recipes and crafting when you get back to camp!

Different fish can be caught in different biomes of the map and there are even legendary rarity fish to be discovered. Remember: the better the Fishing rod, the better the catch!
