A heavy barbarian Fishing rod.

The Barbarian rod is a heavier version of the fishing rod used during the Fishing portion of Barbarian Training. When you start that portion of the training Otto Godblessed will let you take this fishing rod from underneath the bed in his cabin; if you lose or drop it, get another from the bed. It uses fishing bait, feathers, fish offcuts, roe, or caviar as bait. It is the only fishing rod capable of catching leaping trout, leaping salmon, and leaping sturgeon. It can only be used in the fishing spots at Otto's Grotto. Since barbarian fishing gives marginal Strength and Agility experience with each catch, it is more efficient than other training methods such as fly fishing.

  • Although different in appearance in the inventory, the barbarian rod is no different in appearance to any other fishing rod in the Fishing animation.
