“A true angler has respect for the water... don't you forget that.”
— Willy

Willy is a villager who grew up traveling among the Fern Islands and now lives south of Pelican Town on The Beach. He sells bait and fishing supplies in his shop. His shop is open every day, but will be closed on Saturday if the weather is nice enough for him to go fishing.

Schedule

Most days Willy wakes up at about 6:10 AM, and fishes at the beach for a few hours before operating his fish shop between 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. He'll often do more fishing on the beach after closing up shop until about 10:00 PM. During winter he'll go to the saloon instead of the beach after work.

Willy's shop is closed on Saturday while he's out fishing, unless it's raining in which case he'll keep the shop opened.

His schedule can deviate if there are specific conditions like season, weather or certain days of the week. Below are his schedule deviations prioritized highest to lowest (for example when it rains that schedule will override all others below it)
