There are so many awesome things to do in Red Dead Redemption 2 but none are more relaxing than fishing.
It’s actually not until about 5 or so hours in that you get the fishing rod. You get it from a mission called ‘A Fisher Of Men’ that is presented to you by Abigail Roberts
Arthur is tasked with taking one of the camp mate’s son Jack fishing to keep him occupied for a few hours. After licking Jack onto your house, you’ll be magically presented with a fishing rod.
