--Fishing Rod can function as a tether recovery, but it cannot grab through shields.
--Isabelle's Classic route is called "Best in Show", in reference to the fact that she is a dog; however, the actual theme of the route is just having her fight (almost) every female character.

Just like Villager, Isabelle is really freaking weird (which is good) & has awkward hitboxes (which is bad).

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

fishing rod has an interesting patch history: in the 3.0.0 patch, fishing rod lost the ability to grab opponents on reel-in once it hit the ground. however, it gained the ability to grab opponents while the bobber was at a standstill in the air, meaning if you cast your line off the ledge it would automatically hook opponents in without the need to reel in first.

the recent 3.1.0 patch undid these changes and reverted fishing rod back to how it worked pre-3.0.0
