Don't get confused the blind catfish u might have in the bank doesn't work for this. All the fish caught here have the Lore, No Drop, Quest flags on them.

only used 24 pieces of bait, caught 4 in ruins of Illsalin, 1 in corathus creep, 1 in undershore, and 1 in stoneroot falls. took me about 25 min or so.

Kinda suxs that The Bone Rod is primary only, so to reduce chance of breakage only use it when at the fly bench or tacklebox breaking down fish or making flys

After about 50 times fishing with it The Bone Rod did break =( so yep IMO don't fish with it, just use it for skill work

The seven bones you receive as task reward also have a 7% Fishing skill mod, however these are not fishing poles. They are tradeable, so if players are simply looking for a mod item these can be scattered to others instead of making the bonus item.

Combine the 7 Bones you get back (Fishing Skill) and you will make the "Bonus" item called THE BONE ROD (Magic, Weight 2.2, Skill Mod: Fishing 7% (15 Max).

Really easy quest , even at 1 in fishing take about 15-20 min ... to get the bonus , once you get the reward wich is 7 bones , you put them in a fly making bench , press combine and get The Bone Rod wich is a 7% fishing mod fishing pole with tradeskill tag on it ... btw the npc tell you he will teach you a recipie , i thought it was to make the rod but it seems ( i might be wrong tho ) that you need to do this quest before you can do the bonus part of the collection quest named Pieces is Pieces .
PS ... req RoS to get the quest and seems to share the task timer of 18 hours with Pieces is Pieces
