The normal tools in Animal Crossing: New Leaf are the net, fishing rod, shovel, axe, watering can, and slingshot. You can get silver versions of all of these tools by performing certain tasks. This guide shows you how.

Silver Net

Silver Net

You can buy the silver net from the museum shop after you have donated 30 bugs to the museum. If your museum shop is not selling a silver net and you have donated 30 bugs to the museum, then don’t worry, because the museum shop changes its stock each day, so just keep checking back regularly until a silver net is available for purchase. The silver net has a wider net radius than a normal net and it costs 500 Bells.

Silver Fishing Rod
