In Tales of Arise you can equip different Fishing Rods and Fishing Lures to attract specific types of fish. This is particularly useful when you want to catch all fish for the Godly Angler trophy and achievement.
» For Fish Locations & How to Fish refer to: Tales of Arise All Fish Locations
This guide covers specifically the rods and lures only. There are 2 basic ways in which you get rods and lures: As rewards from the fishing master after having caught a certain number of fish & as collectibles found in the world (in chests or from quests and training ground challenges). A few are also bought from merchants / inn keepers.
After interacting with a fishing spot you can press to change your rod/lure and to see what buttons to press to attract each fish type. Each lure attracts certain types of fish. If the fish is present where you are, it will have a 100% spawn chance with the correct lure equipped. This makes it very easy to catch the rarest types of fish and saves some time. However, it is not absolutely mandatory to equip the correct lures. You can catch any type of fish with any lure (even the default starting lure). What is more important is that you press the correct button combo to attract the fish you need, but this is explained in more death in the Fishing Guide.
