I have been in Nooks every day without fail to see what he has available and still no silver fishing rod! I did get a silver slingshot, although I don't know what good that will do me since I already have the gold one. But he has yet to offer the silver fishing rod. Also I have noticed that for the past 4-5 days he has been offering the same things more than once during the week- he had the cubby hole twice this week and the stroller two days in a row! Whats up with that??
Also I have tried to go to town after 8 pm to see if I can get to Resetti's office to get the silver shovel but no luck. Does it have to be right at 8 pm? How late can you go and still get back there?
I'm starting to think since I usually end up having to play at night that maybe I need to set my Wii so that days and nights are switched-- but I like being fairly close to the regular time. I want people to come and visit for one thing, and also I sort of like the night time there. Most of the neighbors that I like the most are night owls like me. But am I likely to find any of the special characters if I am playing in the evenings? How late can I find Wendell if he is there? The only character I have come across aside from the regulars is Pascal, and I really want to find Wendell to get a good pathway pattern. I would kill for that stone path pattern but I don't think the fish for that one is available for catching right now.
Sigh.... so much to learn in this game- I can't believe I ever thought it was just a kids game, LOL!!!
