It's a rather obscure joke from Morrowind's development. You can read about it here: https://en.uesp.net/wiki/General:Fishy_Stick

Thanks for answering Jay. :)

Captain Eldrad joined the forums several months before I did in 2001. There were already a lot of fishy sticks being thrown around by the time I came along to show off Daggerfall Media, which evolved into Daggerfall Explorer. That whole time stands so large and bright in my memory. I was still in my mid-20s, had just started dating a special someone, and was about to start my own business. I felt really good about making Daggerfall stuff and enjoyed being part of those early Bethesda forums before Morrowind.

Fishy sticks carried over to the old Workshop Forums in 2004 because some of the same people visited my forums. It only felt right to make a nod back to that time and place when starting up my forums again here.

I just wanted to say that I've appreciated the community spirit Interkarma and other veteran DFU developers have fostered over the years even more than I ever remember enjoying Daggerfall itself back in the day, and I love to see a project like this open up so much fun for gamers new and old. Thanks to all for the good times. I hope to check in every once in a long while, but for now, take care, and all the best!
Hey Mike, I wish you and your nephew the best, stay strong! It was very nice having you around, I hope one day you get back to see how the project grows. Laters mate!
