About Goldenscale Vendorfish

Vendor Value: 6g (obviously).

Catching Goldenscale Vendorfish

Notes: Rarely caught from any pool in Outland (approximately 1% of the catch). Also from open water in Nagrand, Netherstorm, Terokkar Forest and Zangarmarsh (a fraction of 1% of the catch).

Commentary: The Goldenscale Vendorfish is popular among anglers, both for its name and its vendor value. However, I don't recommend specifically trying to catch it. It simply isn't a common catch. Just be glad when you come across it while fishing for something else in Outland. The 6g vendors will offer for the fish sounds a lot, but is no more than a few cooked Furious Crawdad or Icefin Bluefish will fetch at auction. Those are a lot quicker to catch than Goldenscale Vendorfish. And there's still a chance you'll catch Goldenscale Vendorfish in the process.
