Re: "Fishing lines and hats do not stack"
If "Fishing lines and hats do not stack" is true, [then the max bonus is +157,] not +162 Total Possible Fishing Skill Boost as the bottom of the chart says.
I think the Lucky Fishing Hat will stack with the High Test Eternium Fishing Line, since those and the boots are all fish skill boosting prizes from the same event, but I don't have any of these to check it. My guess is that the Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat will not stack with it's own lure, perhaps not with others either, and that is what the statement was rather poorly referring to. Anyone who knows, please respond.
Also: El's Extreme Anglin' Fishing Guide, a very knowledgeable resource, reports "At the time of writing, the absolute maximum achievable fishing skill (from personal skill, lures and gear) is 537 if you have won the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza." - this says that the Lucky Fishing Hat will stack.

- I have a and a . I can confirm that they do stack, and that the hat stacks with its own lure. —MJBurrage(T•C) 14:41, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
Question regarding the Fishing Chair, do you get a seated regeneration rate if you use this (sit in it) while fishing? (... a minor, but not totally cosmetic, effect of using this chair while fishing?) It seems that you would. Madkaugh (talk) 01:23, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
Chair Info and Contest Info Edit
We may want to clarify these just a bit.
You CAN sit or lay down and fish without the fishing chair item. Its just a neat novelty item you can sit IN while fishing. You can sit on the end of any dock, or lay on any shore or vis versa and still cast your line.
Also... you do not have to be 225 BASE skill to win the contest. You can fish up the Tastyfish at a much lower level if you have a lure. I believe my little rogue was fishing there at about 170 base skill plus a lure. Its certainly more challenging to be a winner as you run into issues with mobs that aggo, and lost catches but its entirely Possible. :) Trilless (talk) 18:41, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
