The Angler Earring is an accessory that provides a 10% boost to your Fishing power when equipped. It is acquired as a 2.5*1/40 (2.5%)[1] chance reward for completing a Fishing quest for the Angler NPC.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, Mobile version Mobile version, and Nintendo Switch version Nintendo Switch version, the Angler will not give you an Angler Earring as a reward if you already have one in your inventory or in any of your Portable Storages. However, if you have a High Test Fishing Line, Angler Earring, and Tackle Box (or you have the accessory crafted from them, the Angler Tackle Bag) in your inventories, he will be able to give you duplicate Angler Earrings.[1]

Only one Angler Earring can be equipped at a time, however the increase in fishing power stacks with that of the Angler Tackle Bag and the Lavaproof Tackle Bag, granting a total boost of 30% if all three are equipped. Due to the aforementioned rule on duplicates for Desktop version Desktop version, it could be beneficial to keep your Angler Earring in a chest, out of your possessions (inventory or portable storages), while keeping the other two in, to guarantee getting a second Angler Earring as soon as possible.
