Nat Pagle is one of the most famous fishermen in all of Azeroth. Having licensed his own line of fishing equipment, Nat can be found in myriad locations all around the world, offering training to aspiring fishermen who seek him out.

He states he has no particular interest in fishing, but has been fishing for 20–30 years. He also says that fishing is "a great excuse to drink ... heavily", and therefore he enjoys the occasional drink now and then.[1]

Biography

World of Warcraft

WoW Icon 16x16.png This section concerns content exclusive to World of Warcraft.

Nat Pagle in Dustwallow Marsh.

Nat Pagle gives the quest Nat Pagle, Angler Extreme. A fishing skill of 225 and a minimum level of 35 are required to start the quest. After Patch 3.1, this quest is no longer required to attain the Artisan fishing level. The quest now offers a special superior-quality fishing pole instead. If you already completed the quest, you can visit Nat Pagle to receive this fishing pole.

Prior to the Cataclysm expansion, players could obtain the quest N [60R] Nat's Measuring Tape when opening a Battered Tackle Box containing the tape, found at Pagle's Pointe in Zul'Gurub (original). This quest involved returning the tape to Nat. When completing this quest, he said it is his favorite measuring tape and shares information about the hydra Gahz'ranka.

Also prior to Cataclysm: In another repeatable quest given by Nat, after completing "Nat's Measuring Tape" and having a fishing skill of 300 or higher, he gave instructions for summoning Gahz'ranka at Pagle's Pointe. He also sold the lures needed for summoning Gahz'ranka. These [Mudskunk Lure]s had to each be filled with 5  [Zulian Mudskunk] in order to be used. Zulian Mudskunk were caught in Zul'Gurub itself by fishermen with 300 skill or more. This Zul'Gurub boss encounter was optional and could be done only once after every reset of the instance. Note: As of Patch 5.4.1, Pagle continues to offer to tell the player how to fish up Gahz'ranka and still sells the lure, even though Gahz'ranka was not part of the new Zul'Gurub instance after Patch 4.0.3 and thus can no longer be caught.

In-game, various items besides the ones in Nat Pagle's line of fishing equipment (below) can be found. Most notorious is the book [Nat Pagle's Guide to Extreme Anglin']. It is by this book that Nat Pagle was first connected to the quest for the legendary sword Ashbringer. The last readable page contains only the words: "... And so that's where you'll find the legendary sword of the Scarlet Highlord, Ashbringer. Ain't it amazin' what you run into in an ordinary day of fishin'?"

In the Escape from Durnholde Keep instance in the Caverns of Time, Nat is seen fishing alongside Hal McAllister in Southshore. He talks about his dreams of events that will happen in the future, like Tarren Mill being overrun by the Undead, Arthas being possessed by the Lich King and killing his father, Thrall's escape from Durnholde Keep, and Archimonde being killed by "small lights". (In that dream, he was a female night elf.) He also describes two gangsters named Tigule and Foror inventing [ice cream], and eventually entering a dimensional gate. McAllister scoffs at every dream, which ironically all are to come true in real life.

Starting in Patch 2.3.0, Nat is involved in the Take Down Tethyr! quest line, started by Sergeant Amelyn (This Old Lighthouse), which ultimately has players fighting Tethyr, a Level ?? Elite (Boss) Sea monster, with the help of some guards from Theramore.

Nat's appearance begins with the quest Is it Real? offered by "Dirty" Michael Crowe. Nat offers Nat's Bargain. After accepting the quest, apply the [Pagle's Fish Paste, Extra Strength] he gives you, then swim southwest to the wrecked ship. Swim around until a level 37 Lurking Shark aggros, then swim back up to Nat to complete the quest.

After completing Nat's Bargain, he offers Oh, It's Real directing players to Major Mills near the docks of Theramore.

Nat Pagle, as every fisherman, is very sturdy and remains untouched by the Shattering and Deathwing. Also, his [Arcanite Fishing Pole] that he donated for Booty Bay's fishing contest is now more unique in terms of look.

Nat helps defend Sethria's Roost on Mount Hyjal against the minions of Ragnaros during the quest N [85 Daily] The Protectors of Hyjal and also occasionally makes an appearance on the Darkmoon Island at the Darkmoon Boardwalk overlooking the sea.

Quotes

  • "If you ask me, the best part about fishing is its slow pace. It gives one time to think, to reflect on past events and to plan for future ones. Oh, and it's also a great excuse to drink. Heavily."
  • "Can't say I really enjoy fishin' much. Figure I been at it for a good 20 or 30 years now."[citation needed]
  • "I reckon people are driven to do what they do for different reasons."[citation needed]
  • "Now, I'm not saying you need to fish for 30 years or catch every fish in the sea to become a master fisherman. I reckon you just need to be determined - determined enough to sit on your duff for hours at a time, doin' nothin'."[citation needed]
  • "Fishin's fer sissies."[3]
  • "Normally bugs are for bait, but how could you look into its eyes and even think that?"[4]

Caverns of Time

Nat is found in Old Hillsbrad Foothills as an uninteractable NPC. He is much younger and he has not even grown a mustache yet. He is Level 38 instead of his normal Level 45. He is found fishing at the end of the Southshore dock beside Hal McAllister, with whom he has some amusing conversations about his vivid dreams.

Nat Pagle says: Hal...
Hal McAllister says: Yea, Nat?
Nat Pagle says: Had that dream again last night...
Hal McAllister says: Which one?
  • Nat Pagle says: So I'm on some mountain with some big ol' tree. Bunch of elves runnin' around all over...
Nat Pagle says: Out of nowhere, some 300 foot tall demon or somethin' walks up and stars climbin' the tree...
Nat Pagle says: And if that weren't crazy enough, that big demon gets killed by a bunch of little floating light things... Oh, I was also a female elf in that one... Yep...
  • Nat Pagle says: I can't even believe this one... You know those two loud-mouthed ruffians, Foror and Tigule?
Nat Pagle says: Well in this dream, they somehow end up inventing something called [ice-cream] and flavoring it with strawberries... Well, long story short, they end up striking it rich!
Nat Pagle says: If that weren't crazy enough, they decide to quit ice-cream business and become adventurers... They travel all over the place and finally disappear into some portal. I woke up in a cold sweat after that one...
  • Nat Pagle says: This one's real grim... So the king's kid, Arthas... Well he goes out to battle evil, along with Uther...
Nat pats his brow dry.
Nat Pagle says: But tragically, Arthas is consumed by the evil and becomes evil himself...
Nat Pagle says: Well, he comes back to the king all pretendin' to be nice, draws his sword, and runs the king through, elbow to... well you know... kills him on the spot.
Hal McAllister shakes his head.
  • Nat Pagle says: In this dream, I was fishin' master of the world. I moved to some place called Kalimdor...
Nat Pagle says: And people from all over the world come to pay me homage... and learn to fish.
Nat Pagle says: I'm like some kind of fishing god...
  • Nat Pagle says: That one dream... The crazy one. Remember?
Nat Pagle says: Tarren Mill is destroyed by some crazy force of undead and forever more becomes an enemy to Southshore.
Nat Pagle says: Could ya imagine such a thing, Hal? Could ya?
Nat Pagle says: He ends up destroying the whole keep, freeing all the orcs we're keeping in the camps, and rising to power as the king of orcs... Warchief or somethin'.
Nat Pagle says: Crazy, isn't it?

Each time, Hal McAllister finally answer him one the following:

  • Nat, Nat, Nat...
  • Impossible!
  • What you got in that pipe, Nat?
  • Nat, I've heard a whopper or two in my day but that one takes the cake.
  • I worry about you sometimes, Nat.
  • No way.
  • Shut up and fish, Nat.
