It seems kind of silly that there are no achievements and/or feats of strength past the 1000 fish mark. It will likely take mostly people 10k+ casts to get all the current fishing achievements, and even then some people just like to fish for fun and/or money.
Most other achievements that track your progress on an unending count (i.e. honorable kills) max out at much higher levels (100k kills), and it's really cool to still have something to aim for once you've completed all the other achievements related to a specific skill or subarea of the game.
It just seems that 1000 fish is such a silly mark, and since they track your fish caught in the statistics tab anyway, why not implement achievements at the 5k, 10k, 25k, and maybe even 100k mark? Surely some people will hit those numbers over time, so why not give them some recognition for doing so?
Hopefully Blizz is planning to do this already and just hasn't prioritized it since not many people are over the 10k mark yet anyway.
What do you guys think? How many fish (and other things) have you caught so far?
Me, I'm only at the 6k mark, but I still have a couple rare fish to catch and just haven't had the time to sit down and grind them out.
Hey El, how about a poll that asks people which of the above marks they've reached (1k, 5k, 10k, 25k, etc)? I'd be curious to know where most other anglers stand at this point.
