A fishing pole in a dream means a ploy and deception.
The same interpretation goes for all fishing tools and equipment.
It is better to see oneself in a dream holding it, than seeing others fishing with it or carrying it. 164
Dreams of a fishing pole represents desire, and that you are extending yourself, putting your desires “out there”, hoping for a bite.
A fishing pole is also a symbol of the penis, a desire for sex, intimacy, and/or fertility. Or perhaps you are fishing for clues or answers to the issues and challenges you are dealing with.
