Many players stated that their favorite way to get an enchanted fishing rod is to fish for it rather than enchant it themselves. Sure, it saves experience and lapis lazuli. However, the results may vary regarding what fishing rod to loot from the ocean floor.

Other Minecraft players’ comments focus on the Curse of Disappearance, applied to fishing rods. This enchantment has a negative effect. If a player dies while holding a fishing rod, the fishing rod will disappear, and the player will not be able to retrieve it upon returning to the point of death.

Some players joked that this enchantment was not available in hardcore mode. Others said the “Curse of Vanishing I” in the Bedrock Edition implies a hidden level to the curse. This is certainly not true, but it is interesting to think about.
