This item is not a fishing pole.
The story goes that a dwarf, Oirc Steeltoes, and a goblin, Pac Seecrek, were having a relaxing day fishing in a lake. After getting frustrated with fish that weren’t biting, Seecrek pulled a fat stick of explosives from his boot, casually lit it with the fire in the dwarf’s pipe, and tossed it into the lake.
The resulting rain of fish pleased the goblin so much that he tossed his fishing pole into the still choppy waters in the lake and only used explosives from then on. Although few individuals other than Seecrek use the goblin fishing pole as its name suggests, it has kept the odd name.
The explosive itself is strong and dangerous to use, as it has a short fuse.
