Martin sells various fishing poles that players can use:

Expert's Rod
Master's Rod
Captain's Fishing Rod

Although the name Martin is commonly associated towards war and conflicts, the name Martin may be based on the definition of fertility, and it is common for fishes to tend to their eggs in a suitable environment that is fertile. In other words, a place where creatures can easily survive and have all of their essential needs in order to benefit their survival and their survival of their species as a whole.

List of Dialogues

  • "Well, I'll be! You look like a fine young angler, perhaps you're looking to take your fishing up a notch?"
    1. "Let me see what you have."
    2. "Is this your cabin?"
      • "Indeed it is, I built it myself. I always liked coming down to the lake here, so I figured I'd save my self the trek from town. To be honest though, those people up there always bugged me. It's more peaceful out here."
    3. "What's in this lake?"
      • "Technically it's a spring, not a lake. As for what swims in it, well, lots of river fish like to hang around cause of the warmth, but in particular those big catfish seem to love it. Can't say I've ever managed to hook one of those though."
    4. "No thanks."
