The fisherman at the Seafront pier is a true expert in the art of Fishing. NieR goes to him for guidance on how to fish, and he challenges him with a fishing task before teaching him his fishing secrets. When Grimoire Weiss questioned his intentions, he called him a floating magazine.
The old Fisherman is a vital character in all the Fisherman Quests that help NieR improve his Fishing Skills. His Quests usually consist of bringing him a number of fish of his choice. Speaking to him for the first time will give NieR his first Fishing rod and Lure set.
Check the Fishing Guide for details on how to fish, fish spawn locations, and the correct bait choices.
