The Training Rod is a special tool used to catch fish. It can be purchased for 25g from Willy's Fish Shop if the player has difficulty with the fishing minigame. It effectively sets the player's fishing skill equal to level 5 for the purposes of determining how big to make the green bar.
The Training Rod can catch only basic fish, and does not allow the use of Bait or Tackle. Additionally, it is impossible to catch silver/gold/iridium quality fish with the Training Rod. However, fish caught with the Training Rod grant the same XP as with any other fishing rod. They also count towards Achievements and the Fish Collection.
It is possible to collect fishing treasure chests with the Training Rod.
The Training Rod can only catch fish with a difficulty lower than 50:
