Barbarian rod detail.png

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. You also gain marginal Strength and Agility experience when you fish with this rod. Heavy-rod fishing is notable for being the one of the fastest Fishing experience rates in the game.

With use of the recyclable bait, players never need to bank. It can also be stored on the tool belt.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • On 6 January, 2009, Barbarian fishing became slightly slower because of the "cut-all" option Jagex introduced.[1] This made cutting fish take slightly longer. However, using feathers or bait to catch the fish will increase the experience per hour considerably.
  • Although different in appearance in the inventory, the Barbarian rod is no different in appearance to any other fishing rod in the Fishing animation.
