Willy is a villager living in Stardew Valley. He is the local fisherman and is in his shop daily. He will often be found fishing before and after his shift on the docks around his shop. The player is introduced to him when he sends a letter telling to visit him, when the player comes to the beach, a cut scene pop up showing Willy giving you his old rod to keep fishing alive.

Willy relaxes at the saloon some nights.

Three Hearts

After gaining 3 hearts with Willy you will receive a recipe in the mail



"Ahoy there son. Looks like decent weather for fishing, eh?"
"I need a little warm-me-up to be ready for another winter night on the ocean."
"If the local fishing scene got a bit more lively, I might expand the shop's stock."
"If you purchase a high quality fishing rod, you'll be able to attach bait and tackle to the line. Bait causes fish to bite faster. Tackle can make your job a lot easier when reeling fish in. There's all kinds of tackle, with different perks. They're usually a little flimsy so don't be surprised if your tackle breaks after awhile."


Egg Festival

  • "Sometimes I'll hide an egg too well and no one finds it...Well, until summer rolls around. Then the hot air starts to bring out the rotten smell...hehe."

Dance of the Moonlight Jellies

  • "Most night-fish would be scared of the light...these are strange ones."

Festival of Ice

  • "Hey, (Name). Ready for some ice fishing?
    Yes, I'll do my best! - "That's the spirit!"
    Yes, and I'm going to beat you! - "We'll see."
    To be honest, no. I'm bad at fishing. - "Well think of it as good practice."
