When your running into attack someone, Hit them with the fishing rod and then just after you hit them with the fishing rod, hit them with your sword.

Saucymeister, covered the fishing rod technique, but it's not that easy.

Changing you fishing rod and you're sword quick can be really difficult if you're mouse doesn't have Key-Shortcuts, they make a big advantage if you have them, but if you don't that's fine, the fishing technique will be more difficult but I guess you could to it... —not really— I don't really use the fishing technique unleash i'm in the water or when someone is chasing me. In single player, I encourage you to practice with the fishing rod technique and with all of the other techniques, that way you can get better at flints and steel and become a better archer in game! Hope this helps you and everything really comes down do practise. ;)

You put the fishing rod in the slot next or 2 slots away from your sword. Charge at the person with your sword and when u are really close(8 blocks) switch to fishing rod and right click. This will hit the opponent straight and he will fly back. This will leave him stunned and you can quickly switch back to your sword and get "under" him as the fishing rod makes him "fly" and hit him multiple times

When you hit a player with the fishing rod (right click) it stuns them for a short amount of time. While stunned the other play can go in for the first hit before the other player, thus getting an advantage in the fight. This is the most common technique I have seen with the fishing rod. It's very useful so I suggest getting as good as you can with it. :D

My mouse doesn't have key shortcuts and I can do it fine.

Lol, that means you're pretty good with the mouse. I suck at changing my slots quick :p

Ok, so the 'fishing rod trick' is, in my opinion, quite affective. The general use of the fishing rod trick is to knock back the player as you approach them at a fast pace so that they get knocked back and you get the first hit, if done correctly. You may also use a fishing rod to push the players back if you are on low health. Finally, if you are in a water battle, it is always useful to have your fishing rod in your hot bar if you need to either, knock back the opponent or knock a teammate further towards your opponent. My technique and setup in my hot bar is: 1. Sword, 2. Bow, 3. Fishing Rod etc... I always have my fishing rod out (when not fighting) to ensure i am always ready to use it as someone approaches. Also, to hide my sword so my opponent doesn't know what kind of sword i have. I hover my finger above the number 1 on my keyboard, so that it ensures that i can quickly switch to my sword. Furthermore, I have another finger hovering over the number 3 on my keyboard, just in case I need to switch to my fishing rod again, if i need to knock my opponent back (possibly if i'm on low health).
Tip: (If you don't already know this), After casting your fishing rod out, don't reel it back in, with your scroll wheel or number keys, quickly switch to another item, probably the item next to you, and go back to your fishing rod to ensure your not using up your fishing rod.

Hope this is a good enough guide, if you attempt to do the fishing rod trick, Good Luck!:D

I'm one of those few people who used the fishing rod technique before it became really popular.

I used it to hit players back though, never used it for the stun. :p
