Nat Pagle's Extreme Angler FC-5000, before Patch 3.1.0, was the ultimate in fishing gear for the extreme angler! If you like sitting on a shoreline endlessly throwing a shiny piece of metal in the water hoping to tear a fish from its home, this is the pole for you!



Nat Pagle's Extreme Angler was originally unobtainable for Alliance characters since it was the reward from a Horde only quest, and is Bind on Pickup. A workaround was to Faction Change to Horde, complete the quest, then Faction Change back to the Alliance.
