Introduction

Poleless Fishing
Poleless Fishing - The twig fishing pole visible when fishing without a pole equipped.

Anglers can fish without equipping a pole: Just cast! A twig-style pole will appear in your hands (illustrated), without unequipping your weapons. This twig has no skill bonuses and cannot be lured.

Such poleless fishing is primarily useful where your personal fishing skill is good enough to fish without skill bonuses from poles. It is easier to respond to attacks when your weapons are still equipped.

Alternatively, anglers can equip a fishing pole of their choice. Most fishing poles give bonuses to fishing skill: While the pole is equipped, your effective fishing skill will be increased by the bonus. So if you skill is 100, and you equip a Big Iron Fishing Pole with +20 bonus, your effective fishing skill will be 120. Bonuses from poles stack with bonuses from other Fishing Gear and Lures.

Poles are held like weapons, and can be used in combat. They cannot be enchanted (except with lines), and using them will not raise combat skills (such as "unarmed"). For discussion about how fishing skill influences effective weapon skill and critical chance rate, read this.

This table summarises fishing statistics for all poles. Further details of each pole are listed below by skill bonus.

** The minimum level in brackets is the level to complete the quests, and gain the pole. It is technically possible to gain the Dragon Fishing Pole and Pandaren Fishing Pole at level 85 by completing quests that gain Nat Pagle's Friendship, which also grant Anglers reputation.

There are several "fishing poles" which cannot be used to fish, and are not described here:

After using the Hozen Beach Ball, anglers will appear to fish with a spade (thanks Gizel).

Basic Fishing Poles

Fishing Pole

El's Fishing Pole
El's Fishing Pole
Fishing Pole
  • Source: Vendor (Trade and Fishing Suppliers) for about 4c

Basic Fishing Poles are sold by most Trade Suppliers and all Fishing Suppliers. Completing the Draenai quest "Red Snapper - Very Tasty!" also rewards you with this pole. This pole can also rarely be caught while fishing open water in Draenor. The basic Fishing Pole gives no bonus to fishing skill - it just catches fish.

Many fishing poles look like this basic Fishing Pole. The highest skill poles use different designs, illustrated later.

Staats' Fishing Pole

Johnathan Staats
Johnathan Staats - Lor'danel.
Staats' Fishing Pole
  • Skill bonus: +3
  • Minimum fishing skill required: 1
  • Source: Level 8+ Alliance-only quest (A Taste for Grouper)

Staats' Fishing Pole is the reward from alliance-only quest "A Taste for Grouper", from Johnathan Staats, found on the beach at Lor'danel, Darkshore. The quest requires 4 Darkshore Grouper, which can still be caught from the sea next to the quest-giver. A Taste for Grouper is available once you have completed the first 2 quests in the zone, The Last Wave of Survivors and Threat from the Water. The pole is bound to you, so there is no way for Horde to gain it (not that they should want to).

Before the Cataclysm, Gubber Blump offered his +3 fishing skill Blump Family Fishing Pole as a reward. This pole can no longer be obtained. The new Staats' Fishing Pole has the same bonus and is available through a very similar quest.

Thruk's Fishing Rod

Thruk
Thruk - Ogre boss in Blackfathom Deeps.
Thruk's Fishing Rod

Thruk's Fishing Rod can sometimes be looted from Thruk, found in the Moonshrines Ruins of Blackfathom Deeps. Although Thruk appears to wield a Bone Fishing Pole, the pole he drops uses a basic fishing pole design. Thruk may also drop Thruk's Heavy Duty Fishing Pole, which is technically a staff, and cannot be used for fishing.

Strong Fishing Pole

Strong Fishing Pole
  • Skill bonus: +5
  • Minimum fishing skill required: 10
  • Source: Vendor (Fishing Suppliers) in limited quantities for about 9s

The Strong Fishing Pole is a limited supply item from fishing suppliers, but most carry one. This pole can also rarely be caught while fishing open water in Draenor.

Pandaren Fishing Pole

El's Pandaren Fishing Pole
El's Pandaren Fishing Pole - Anglers reward.
Pandaren Fishing Pole
  • Skill bonus: +10
  • Source: Sold at Honored with The Anglers for about 25g

The Pandaren Fishing Pole is illustrated right. It is the only low-skill fishing pole with a non-standard design. The pole has no skill requirement, so may be useful for those leveling fishing, who have gained Honored reputation by completing some of The Anglers quests that do not require high fishing skill. Read more about The Anglers Fishing Quests.

Mid-Range Fishing Poles

Darkwood Fishing Pole

Darkwood Fishing Pole
  • Skill bonus: +15
  • Minimum fishing skill required: 50
  • Source: Fishing (see below)

Originally the Darkwood Fishing Pole was very (very) rarely carried by Nightbane Worgen in Duskwood (thanks Ernest Santos) or Bloodsnout Worgs in Silverpine Forest. For most anglers, the Darkwood Fishing Pole was legendary: Only a handful of people had ever seen it. The pole has since been found as a catch from fishing. It is known to be very rarely caught from inland open water in Ashenvale, Duskwood, Hillsbrad Foothills, Redridge Mountains, Stonetalon Mountains, and Wetlands. If you know of other locations, please let us know!

Big Iron Fishing Pole

Big Iron Fishing Pole
  • Skill bonus: +20
  • Minimum fishing skill required: 100
  • Source: Rarely from Shellfish Traps in Desolace (see below) or from open water in Draenor

The Big Iron Fishing Pole is rarely found in the Shellfish Traps on the floor of the ocean off the coast of Desolace, in the bay immediately south-west of Shadowprey Village:

Swim round opening all the traps you can find until one contains the pole. You are not looking for one particular trap - there is a chance of about 1 in 100 of any one trap containing a pole. Those odds are very variable - you may need to investigate hundreds of traps before finding a pole. The Shellfish found in most of the traps are for the Horde-only quest "Fish in a Bucket". Some of the traps contain a single (level 34+) monster, which you need to be able to fight. I recommend that you use underwater breathing potions, enlist the help of a special mage (I prefer that term to "warlock") or Shaman who can cast underwater breathing, or acquire an item that allows you to breath underwater. Fin notes, "you can actually stay underwater by positioning yourself over one of the scattered bubble points (which resets your Breath meter)." This will remove the need to return to the surface after investigating each trap, saving a lot of time.

This pole can also rarely be caught while fishing open water in Draenor.

The Big Iron Fishing Pole is the highest bonus pole not to be bound to its finder: It can be traded.

Seth's Graphite Fishing Pole

Seth
Seth - Shattrath.
Seth's Graphite Fishing Pole
  • Skill bonus: +20
  • Minimum fishing skill required: 200
  • Source: Level 62+ quest (Rather Be Fishin')
  • Also gives +52 Stamina

Reward for quest "Rather Be Fishin'" from Seth in refuge area of Shattrath City. The Pristine Shimmerscale Eels required for the quest can't be caught - they are dropped by the Shimmerscale Eels in Silmyr Lake.

Nat Pagle's Extreme Angler FC-5000

Katoom the Angler
Katoom the Angler - Revantusk Village.
Dron Blastbrew
Dron Blastbrew - Stormfeather Outpost.
Nat Pagle's Extreme Angler FC-5000

Horde quest "Snapjaws, Mon!" is given by Katoom the Angler in Revantusk Village, The Hinterlands. The Alliance quest Snapjaws, Lad! starts from Dron Blastbrew in Stormfeather Outpost, also in The Hinterlands. Both quests require you to kill Saltwater Snapjaws, which can be found along the coast of the Hinterlands. The pole is bound to its new owner, so cannot be traded.

Before the Cataclysm, the only way to gain this pole as Alliance was to faction-change from Horde. The Cataclysm added a quest for Alliance, allowing both factions to easily gain the pole.

Nat's Lucky Fishing Pole

Nat Pagle
Nat Pagle - Krasarang Wilds.
Nat's Lucky Fishing Pole
  • Skill bonus: +25
  • Minimum fishing skill required: 225
  • Source: Level 35+, fishing skill 225+ quest (Nat Pagle, Angler Extreme)

Reward for the quest, "Nat Pagle, Angler Extreme" (formerly the Artisan rank quest). The pole is bound to the angler, so cannot be traded. Anglers that completed the original Artisan rank quest before patch 3.1 can return to Nat Pagle (in Dustwallow Marsh) to claim the new pole. For a full walkthrough, read Nat Pagle, Angler Extreme.

Premium Fishing Poles

Bone Fishing Pole

El's Bone Fishing Pole
El's Bone Fishing Pole

Rarely found in the rewards from the Azeroth Daily Fishing Quests, Northrend Daily Fishing Quests or Garrison Fishing Shack daily quests. The pole is bound when found, so cannot be traded. The pole has a skull-like handle and shark-fin style rod. Full guides to Azeroth, Northrend and Garrison daily quests.

Draenic and Savage Fishing Poles

Draenic and Savage Fishing Poles are faction-specific: Draenic is only available to Alliance, Savage to Horde.

El's Draenic Fishing Pole
El's Draenic Fishing Pole - Sold by Nat Pagle at your Draenor Garrison.
Draenic Fishing Pole
Savage Fishing Pole

Both models are the same, except for the color of the handle. Both poles are sold by Nat Pagle at your Fishing Shack for 25 Nat's Lucky Coin once Friends with Nat - see Catching Lunkers with Nat Pagle for details. Neither pole has a formal level or skill requirement, but in practice unlocking the vendor requires personal level 100 and fishing skill 700.

Other reusable lures are attached to hats, so can be used on any pole. They also last for 10 minutes with a 10 minute cooldown, so can generally keep a pole lured permanently. In contrast, a pole with a reusable lure can only lure itself (since it has to be equipped to be used), and 10 minutes of lure every 20 minutes means that self-luring cannot be sustained. All this means that the Draenic/Savage Fishing Poles can be better than poles with higher skill bonuses, but only under certain conditions: When the pole's native lure is off cooldown or when you have no (+200) Worm Supreme lures available to apply to a pole with a higher skill bonus. The result is that anglers may end up switching between poles at 10 minute intervals, to maximise skill bonuses.

Draenor Fishing Pole
Draenor Fishing Pole - Savage Fishing Pole, as seen at the Horde Garrison Fishing Shack.

Dragon Fishing Pole

El's Dragon Fishing Pole
El's Dragon Fishing Pole - Anglers reward.
Dragon Fishing Pole
  • Skill bonus: +30
  • Minimum fishing skill required: 525
  • Source: Sold at Revered with The Anglers for about 500g

The Dragon Fishing Pole is illustrated right. It is Panadria's equivalent of Northrend's Mastercraft Kalu'ak Fishing Pole: A visually distinctive pole, with respectable +30 skill bonus, that requires reputation to be gained with the continent's native fisher-folk. Read more about The Anglers Fishing Quests.

Like other fishing poles, you may only wield one Dragon Fishing Pole at time: Only Ju Lien can hold 4 at once...

Jeweled Fishing Pole

El's Jeweled Fishing Pole
El's Jeweled Fishing Pole
Jeweled Fishing Pole

Rarely found in the rewards from the Azeroth Daily Fishing Quests, Northrend Daily Fishing Quests or Garrison Fishing Shack daily quests. This pole sparkles (illustrated left)! The pole is bound when found, so cannot be traded. Full guides to Azeroth, Northrend and Garrison daily quests.

Mastercraft Kalu'ak Fishing Pole

El's Mastercraft Kalu'ak Fishing Pole
El's Mastercraft Kalu'ak Fishing Pole
Mastercraft Kalu'ak Fishing Pole
  • Skill bonus: +30
  • Minimum fishing skill required: 300
  • Source: Sold at Kalu'ak (Tuskarr) Exalted for about 100g
  • Also grants underwater breathing

Mastercraft Kalu'ak Fishing Pole can be purchased from quartermaster Tanaika (in the Tuskarr village of Kamagua, in the Howling Fjord) or Sairuk (in Moa'ki Harbor, Dragonblight). You must have Exalted reputation with the Kalu'ak faction. Revered reputation can be reached by completing regular quests in the 3 zones where the Kalu'ak are based (Borean Tundra, Dragonblight and Howling Fjord). Daily quests can then be completed for 500 reputation each. Known quest lines are:

Each daily quest takes less than 5 minutes to complete. If you have finished all the regular quests (and reached Revered), it will take about 2 weeks to reach Exalted by doing daily quests (less with guild or race bonuses).

The Mastercraft Kalu'ak Fishing Pole is the most reliable higher-bonus pole to gain: The reward is not random, like the Bone Fishing Pole or Jeweled Fishing Pole. But the absolute best permanent pole is the hardest of all:

Arcanite Fishing Pole

El's Arcanite Fishing Pole
El's Arcanite Fishing Pole - The best fishing pole in Azeroth!
Arcanite Fishing Pole

One possible reward for winning the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza. Only the 1st place winner may pick the Arcanite Fishing Pole as a prize. The pole is bound to the winner, so you will not find this for sale at the Auction House. Arcanite Fishing Pole gave a +35 bonus until patch 3.1.

Duration Fishing Poles

Ephemeral Fishing Pole

Ephemeral Fishing Pole

The Ephemeral Fishing Pole has a fantastically high skill bonus (+100, compared to +40 for the previous best pole), but the item only has a 1 day (24 hour) duration: After a day logged, it will disappear. The Ephemeral Fishing Pole can be used like regular poles - lured, or even have a fishing line attached (although any attached line will be lost when the pole's duration expires, so attaching a line is not recommended). The pole uses the same model as the Jeweled Fishing Pole. So far the Ephemeral Fishing Pole has been caught from inland open water in Shadowmoon Valley (Draenor) and Spires of Arak. It can also be rarely looted from Cavedwellers, summoned from your Garrison's waters with a level 3 Fishing Shack.

3.1 NEW FISHING POLES!

  • TheTacoMan, February 2009

    Someone data trawling on MMO-champion found these beauties!:

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v133/Grim666/Fishingpolemace.png

    They look pretty cool, perhaps some new, unique fishing poles. Achievement awards maybe? Speculate away!

  • el, February 2009

    Thanks TacoMan. I'm aware of these, but still looking for any information about their source. Oh. I should add that the picture shows 2 out of the 3 files listed as fishing poles. The third is more of a twig.

  • TheTacoMan, February 2009

    I'm aware of that, i just lifted the picture as it was posted.

    The first one looks dated, it looks like the kind of fishing pole Kael would use... or at least another blood elf. The second one is undead - KT's fishing rod?

    AH! I've just had a second thought. The new 'argent tournament' world event features you fighting for specific home cities. Perhaps these fishing rods are rewards for fighting for silvermoon city and undercity respectively?

    Man, my Undead Priest *needs* that bone rod.

    That's one worth grinding for.

  • TheTacoMan, February 2009

    The new bobbers look great! Perhaps this is all part of a customizable fishing rod? I can just see it now, my undead warlock, looking evil as ever with his 5/5 plagueheart, even his fishing rod is an evil bone rod, and for his bobber... a RUBBER DUCKY!

  • Adys, March 2009

    Found this on the PTR

    http://devcub.com/~adys/natpole.jpg

    I don't know where it comes from.

  • el, March 2009

    Thanks Adys. It's a reward for "Nat Pagle, Angler Extreme", the artisan fishing quest. If you have already completed the quest, you can visit Nat and he will simply give you the pole. It is a standard pole design, not one of the new poles.

  • TheTacoMan, March 2009

    Good to see that its still not as good as the Mastercraft Kalulk, or the Arcanite rod, but it is +5 better than seth's graphite pole, and on par with the the FC-5000, which should FINALLY shut up all the alliance players whining that horde get a better fishing pole for minimal effort :P.

    Still no word on the new pole designs, maybe they are for all new northrend fishing quests? Maybe nat himself has moved up to northrend!

    While Nat Pagle probably couldn't care less about the whole Lich King / undead thing... But I wouldn't put it past him to defeat the Lich king by completely depriving him of those wonderful Deep Sea Monsterbelly filets.

    Nat DID accurately predict the rise of the scourge and the fall of arthas years before it happened, maybe someone at the argent dawn wanted to acquire his 'skills' :P

  • Durth, March 2009

    Do you have to have WotLK installed or something? I never got the nat pole when finishing the artisan quest and I just went back to check and he had nothing new to say.

    Yes, and they should be sure to bring their Alliance-only Sprite Darter Hatchling pets with them when they pick up the new pole.

    I stand corrected by the latest news from Warcraftpets.com regarding patch 3.1:

    Since my post isn't showing up in the other thread, I shall post this here...

    I just did the Dangerously Delicious daily and got a new fishing rod out of it: the Jeweled Fishing Pole. It's ugly, but certainly unique!

    Pics!

    It vendors for 9 copper. The wings, unfortunately, don't do anything special and are stationary.

Epic fishing pole

  • Melchizedek, September 2008

    Firstly i want to say hi, this is my first time posting, although i've been a frequent visiter for some time, especially recently with all the WotLK info coming out.

    I;'ve just visited MMO-Champion and found soemthing of interest for my fellow fishers, it seems that the Kalu'ak faction has a an epic fishing pole as a reputation award for exhalted the link to it is here
    http://static.mmo-champion.com/mmoc/images/news/2008/september/8962/tk_4_01.jpg

    Keep up the good work.

  • el, September 2008

    Thanks Melchizedek.

    Like everyone else in Europe, I'm waiting to get online to see these. MMO-Champion is data mining, and not everything data mined actually appears in the game!

    The pole was known about for some time, and we could probably guess Tuskarr rep. I presume there is a rep grind of some kind - beta El reached Revered on quests, but I didn't see a way to go higher.

    If correct, the +30 skill looks like a good compromise: The contest still gives the best pole (at +35), but this is better than the +20/+25 from quests.

  • Oberweiss, September 2008

    Yeah, it was kind of silly that the +25 fishing pole was exclusive to Horde. I'm glad casual Alliance fishers aren't stuck using +20 poles.

  • Gummo, September 2008

    Is getting this pole likely to be added to the "Salty" title requirement?

  • el, September 2008

    There's no achievement directly involving the pole. There is "Tuskarrmageddon" for reaching exalted with Kalu'ak (no baby seals involved), but that's not related to any of the fishing achievements.

  • Zahana, September 2008

    I hope it's not part of the fishing achievements, since the "epic" fishing pole is still not as good for fishing as the one from the Extravaganza.

  • Gummo, September 2008

    It would also make sense that getting this pole would NOT be a fishing achievement nor part of getting the "Salty" title, because getting it doesn't really involve fishing (unless there are some mandatory fishing parts in unavoidable chain quests, which there might be).

  • Hy, September 2008

    Well, I'm pleased that it isn't better than the contest pole. I'm willing to overlook the "zomg shiny purplez!" aspect of it. Water breathing is nice, but one cannot fish while swimming.

  • Gummo, September 2008

    It's possible to fish while swimming, barely:
    1) mount up
    2) ride out just to deeper water
    3) immediately cast before you are auto-dismounted from the water

    You can end up treading water while still having your line out, because you were out of the water during the cast.

  • Hy, September 2008

    I've done that, but it hardly leaves one in danger of drowning.

    Only half-way through honored so far, so dying to know ... : )

  • el, September 2008

    Yes, Idoru - dailies give 500 rep each at revered. They were only added in the last week, and aren't all using the correct icons yet. So far I've found these available at revered:

    Please add any others you've spotted, with your reputation level at the time.

    Just hit Revered this morning, but while I was Honored, I could get Planning for the Future and The Way to His Heart

    Haven't been near Kaskala for a while though, so I have missed that quest.

    Btw, The Way to His Heart .... really cute quest : )

Poles from Dalaran Daily

  • Lilitheen, July 2010

    Anybody know if the Bone pole and the Jeweled pole can be gotten more than once?
    I feel like a noob...I had both of them and in a total fit of stupidity sold them to get gold I needed for a new pc. of armor. In retrospect I certainly wouldn't do it again. Anyway I'm hoping I can get them again.

  • Xellros, July 2010

    I've never seen them drop more than once... O.o And I do the daily every day. (I'm hunting Fishing lines)

  • Aradiel, July 2010

    They could be like the hat, once you get it, you don't get them again. I'd open a ticket and see if you can get them back. For the sake of 35g, you must have had something else to sell.

    If you want the +5 line you're better off fishing in STV during the comp.

    Hmm...I'd sear though that I have gotten the hat at least twice.

  • Druegar, July 2010

    I've received no less than three Weather-Beaten Fishing Hats. They are not Unique.

    Both the Jeweled Fishing Pole and the Bone Fishing Pole are Unique, so you will never be able to posses more than one at a time.

  • Hoddie, July 2010

    I've had them both a few times. I remember selling one of them for 1c and noticing that they'd fixed the vendor price the next time I received it. Though as Druegar says, you can't have more than one each at any time obviously.

  • Xellros, July 2010

    I would, but as it seems, my job gets in the way of serious fishing for the derbies. I'd have to log my character out in the position I wanted to be in, then race home for lunch just to fish for like 7 minutes on the Kalu ak one, then the close 15 minutes on the STV one. Actually hunting for a fish is going to be very difficult. (Took about 4 months to win both contests. I was only able to get My boots of the bay from kalu ak, after I maxed Engineering, it allowed for fast location switching.)

  • Lilitheen, July 2010

    Answered my own question this morning...I got the Jeweled pole again. Needless to say I was very pleased. Now for the Bone...

    Never to be sold again will either of them be...I was such a noob...to place raiding gear above fishing gear...what a fool.

Big Iron Fishing Pole

  • jberryl, March 2013

    Have been collecting and selling Big Iron Fishing Pole's for the past two years. They are not a hot selling item but I've made over 30K gold in the two years. Went farming today inasmuch as I just listed my last pole. Found that the traps are non-clickable. Can anyone else verify they are gone?

  • el, March 2013

    They're not gone: I just managed to loot a Big Iron Fishing Pole. However I could only interact with the minority of the Shellfish Traps. Perhaps the traps are not respawning correctly? If you can, check immediately after the weekly maintenance.

  • jberryl, March 2013

    Will do. I clicked on several on the circuit I normally take - not all of them though and like I said I did put a ticket in. thanks.

Not only is the interaction with the Shellfish traps decrease, as you loot them they decrease further. 25 mins and I'm down to one being available as a respawn. Wonder if they reset daily. Will live my lock there and see what comes up tomorrow am. Oh, just got two more on the pm reset.

    Today, june 11th 2013 - went to look to restock my BIFP stock and there were NO traps available to interact with. My fear is that the BIFP has gone the way of the dodo bird. I'm listing my last one for 250K gold... haha.. collectors item.

    Will see what happens, but I managed to get one!

    Not to resurrect an old post as my first forum post, but, I fished up one of these in Draenor.

    My boyfriend spent HOURS searching traps for me way back when to get this pole, during BC, and I just fished one up while doing the daily.

    So they're definitely still in game, and available in Draenor.

    I've fished up at least 3 of them while trying to get my Draenor Angler achievement
