Fishing things I wish I could fix

I was fishing up at the Fields of Niuzao and I saw Salty El.  I didn't really want to disturb her, but I wanted to say hi to her and thank her for all her help and info about carp.


El said she was contemplating herself while fishing.  She used big words and complex sentences, it made my brain hurt.  I had to stop thinking about what she was saying and just let the calm of fishing envelop me.

It was all so peaceful.  I was hoping for a blue carp.  But I wasn't that lucky.  And I knew it was a bad sign, because this is what I saw flying on the water here.


That's right.  It was telling me that I will catch that carp when pigs fly.

That got me thinking about the big pool and Krakkanon.  I wish that Krakkanon had a chance to drop the carp!  It only drops fish and Pagle fish.

Then I got to thinking about fishing around Binan village in Kun-Lai.  That stupid lake.  It says you can walk on water but that's rubbish, I am mostly IN the water, not on it..  And even if you are on a raft or being levitated you still get dumped in the water!  What is with that!

And then I remembered this weird bug I keep getting, where you click the bobber and it says "there is no loot".  It happens for a few times in a row and you get frustrated thinking "WHAT IF THAT WAS MY CARP!"  You can't fix it till you zone or you relog.  ANNOYING!

And I wish I could fish from my water strider mount .  How cool would that be!  Floating on the water, fishing!

I shook my head from these complaints.  Maybe I jsut needed some different company.  I moved to chat to Angler Jo Ransom - I like her shoes.  I wish I could wear shoes like that.


And that got me thinking about clothes.  I have a fishing hat and boots - why don't they have a fishing vest!  You know, something like this:
Now that would go well on a fishing outfit!  +5 fishing, surely!  With LURES!  Though my hat has a lure anyway, so that's maybe not such a cool idea.  Oooh ooh I know, even better, it can be like a BAG that you wear and I can put my lures in it! Thank you WoW Item Creator!


Oh look at the time!  I have spent all my time fishing and I have tons of fish now.  But still no carp.  Oh well, off to hand in these fish to Nat and get some ironpaw tokens for all these other fish.

Wait!  That reminds me of one more thing that bugs me about fishing.  I need SUPER HIGH level fishing to fish for Spinefish in open water but they are the most useless fish ever.  Who wants to make Desecrated oil?  So it turns you grey, big deal!  Desecrated oil is used for making Darkwater Potion and that might be useful in a battleground when you're flag carrying but it's pretty useless for challenge mode dungeons because it breaks stealth!  Well, I suppose it still gives you speed, so that's pretty good.  But I wish that it made some sort of sha-touched food or if I could bundle it for groceries, that would make it more useful!

  3. The things I wish I could fix about fishing is that it exists and is for jerks! (Can you tell I am fishing right now? It's Jade Forest today btw)

    The vest would be awesome and how about those fishing pants (Waders? I think)! This could potentially solve the fail floaty issue if wearing them let you fish while standing in water.

    2. LOL! That was fun. Fishing is fun with other people. I was having that floatation problem again yesterday in Townlong then again this morning in Jade Forest, maybe our hooves are the problem!

  4. From memory, for endless water walking at Inkgill Mere you merely need to have started on the quests in that area.

    Hoping that Fishing Vest is available in blue.
