Fishing Rods

Fishing Clash has a gear system that helps players to adjust their chances and stats while catching fish. In this article, you can learn what you can gain by upgrading your gear and how to do it.
Each rod has a starting level of 1 and can be upgraded up to level 6. Each rod is assigned to a specific fishery.

Also, each rod also has basic stats and perks.
Basic stats and perks affect the rod’s performance during fishing sessions.

All perks bonuses can be redrawn by pressing the "Draw" button. Players can choose which value will be redrawn. every attempt will cost 5 pearls. It is not guaranteed that the drawn value will be better, in such cases the higher value will remain attached to the rod.

Upgrading Rods
When a rod is upgraded, it will transfer to a higher level, represented by the number of stars.

Basic perks will get higher values.
The previously drawn random perks and values will be unchanged.
When you upgrade a rod, it will receive a new random perk with a random value.

For example: If you want to upgrade a rod from level 2 to 3, you will need:
additional 4 rods with 2nd level to do it (apart from the rod you want to upgrade).
Rod perks on rods used for an upgrade don’t have any influence on perks of the rod you want to upgrade.
You can upgrade a rod only with rods of the same level and from the same fishery.

From level 1 to level 2 – the rod you want to upgrade +5 rods with 1st level
From level 2 to level 3 - the rod you want to upgrade +4 rods with 2nd level
From level 3 to level 4 - the rod you want to upgrade +3 rods with 3rd level
From level 4 to level 5 - the rod you want to upgrade +2 rods with 4th level
From level 5 to level 6 - the rod you want to upgrade +1 rod with 5th level

Assigning lures:
You can assign lures for specific fish to your rods. It will help you build rods for catching certain fish. To do so you will have to go to the rod screen, pick up the rod you would like to assign a lure to and then tap the "Assign" button in the lower right corner of the window. A new window will appear from which lures can be picked.

Those lures will be assigned to the selected rod.
When the assigned fish will be picked on the lure selection screen, its designated rod will be automatically equipped. 
The basic rod will have every available lure from the fishery automatically assigned to it. Picking a lure that does is not assigned to any other rod will equip the basic fishery rod.

One lure can be assigned to one rod only. Assigning already assigned lure to another rod will unassign it from the previous one.

Basic perks:
Each rod has the same basic stats, but their values are higher at higher levels. The only way to increase basic stats is by upgrading the rod.
There are four basic stats:

Stamina per second: Each fish has a certain amount of stamina points. This value tells how many stamina points will be reduced per second. For instance, if a fish has a stamina value of 200 and the stamina per second value is 20, it will take approximately 10 seconds to catch a fish.

gear_CriticalStrikeChance.png
Chance of instant catch: The percent chance of catching a fish instantly when you throw the line.

gear_lineStrength.png
Line strength: Line strength tells you how long the line will hold on the edge of the fishing bar before it breaks.

gear_strikeDamage.png
Stamina decrease at the strike: How many stamina points will be automatically deducted from the fish stamina when the lure is cast.


Random perks:
Apart from basic stats, each rod will have from 1 to 5 random perks.
The number of random perks depends on the current rod level.
Level 1 rod – one perk
Level 2 rod – two perks
etc.

Level 1 rods will have 1 random perk. When a rod is upgraded, it will receive an additional perk that will be randomly drawn from the pool of available perks.
