  • You can move the fishing bar while a Barbed Hook is in use, although it is more difficult, especially with slower fish. The more the fish darts up and down, the easier it is to move the fishing bar manually, and the less effective the Barbed Hook is.
  • Crafting and selling a Barbed Hook is 70g more profitable than selling 1 Copper Bar, 1 Iron Bar, and 1 Gold Bar, unless you have the Blacksmith Profession.
