The fishing pole found in DayZ.

- — In-game description
The fishing pole is used to catch fish so they may be eaten for sustenance. The type of fish caught depends on the length of a Survivor's cast; for instance, a 37-yard cast only yields Trout, while a 60+ yard cast offers the chance of catching valuable Tuna. Fishing is only possible in the sea. In addition, it is possible to fish while on a boat, which increases the chance of successful casts.
The fishing pole may also be used as a melee weapon, delivering 2722 blood in damage. It has an effective range of 1 meter and can be heard by zombies up to 2.2 meters.
The fishing pole can be placed in the tool slot and moved into the primary weapon slot as needed.
