(Anyone Else Got Fishing Storys?)
Hi, I'm Noff, and I just started getting into fishing about two weeks ago, before WotLK came out. I started off by trying too catch Old Ironjaw, and about 1000 fish later, I caught him. Everyone though I was crazy for fishing, saying it was boring, and a waste of time. After I caught Ironjaw, I stormed into Orgrimmar and hid behind a rock too catch Old Crafty, after getting two shot by a lvl 80 mage, gah, I caught Old Crafty after 100 casts, woot!
After catching all those, I decided to give Mr. Pinchy a try, but no luck. So I spent the whole day trying to catch, The One That Didn't Get Away. After fishing for the whole day, I caught my 15 Pound Mudsnapper in the Elwynn forest.
The next day I decided I wont do anything else, until I caught Mr. Pinchy, after about 3 days of non stop fishing, I was about to give in, when all of a sudden there he was. I bragged too all my friend when my first wish from him was the Crawdad :D.
After getting all I could in Azeroth and Outlands, I decided to try and best Northrend, Got my Grandmaster fishing and stormed off into Northrend, only to get killed by a level 76 Giraffe (Turns out they dont like Shadow Word: Death) I bought a port to Dalaran.
Spending about an hour looking for the fountain, I gave up and when into the underbelly to try and catch the giant rat. I prepared for a whole day of fishing. But after 20 casts, I caught him! I have some fishing luck :D
Now I'm in Dalaran, trying to get the famous coins of fountain coiniesness!
It's now 9:11 PM Canada people time. So far I've caught all the copper and silver, need 3 more gold coins. Caught about 500 goldfish, who knew catching goldfish needed such skill, and tasted so good ! lol JK, I only ate about 60 of them for fun.
10:15 PM CPT. Caught all of the coins. Got a coin I can flip! Best idea ever! Got bored of it after the first flip.
It's Sunday and I was sitting in Dalaran, wondering what to do. Then I though, aww crap, 5 minutes untill the Fishing Contest starts. Went to SW and flew as fast as the gryphon could go, which is the same as the other gryphons. I got to the Contest like, 30 seconds late, which was valuable time. So I hopped on my Zebra, thats right, A Zebra, And I fished like hell. I managed to get 35 fish before a winner was declared. I cried. Not really. Ok maybe a little. In the end I traded my fish for like. 5G, kool. To bad I didn't get a rare fish.
Now i'm sitting in Stranglethorn, wondering what i'm going too do. Am I going to get past level 70? Trying and get the fishing nodes in Northrend? Or just run around in circles on my awesome Zebra?
Monday, Dec 1 (omg 18 more days until holidays) just fished some nodes in Northrend, and decided to quest in Howling Fjord so I could get levels too fish in other parts, nothing exciting.... got some recipes, happy cupcakes and bad clams? wtf? who would eat bad clams?
Noffs log: Seadate: Awesome (Dec 02-08). After questing in the Howling Fjord, I came across a giant lift, being the smart guy I am, instead of taking said lift, I simply jumped off the cliff, since I was a priest, I simply floated into the sea. I stumbled upon a school of manta rays, and I thought, "kool, manta rays." and they give a haste bonus, "shwing", Being the curious half goat half humanoid thing I am, I ventured further into the sea, and I noticed, shiny parts of water, but it wasn't a school of fish. I kept fishing Borean Man O' War (If anyone knows what it's used for, post) Then I noticed an orca swim by. I thought, " holy crap, an orca." O finished today by cooking my spoils, I wonder how you cook a manta ray.....
