New Player Question

How does fishing work? Does leveling do anything other than give titles? Do the crafted fishing poles make any difference?

    I have a very Pineleafian question. I’ve been thinking of buying a skirmish lately (because after you’ve done Siege at Gondamon four dozen times times it gets a little boring), but I’m not sure which one I should get. I don’t have any of them unlocked but the free ones. Which one do y’all suggest I get?
