The Darkwood Fishing Pole is a very rare fishing pole that would nicely fill the void between the low level, low fishing skill bonus poles and the higher level, higher bonus poles if it were not so rare.
If you happen to acquire one, know that it is a valuable item, due to it's valid utility and extreme rarity. Although it will ultimately be superseded by better poles as a character matures, it does not bind and it can be continually circulated via trading and sales. Check the market for the on your server and figure that even though this is a somewhat inferior pole, it will probably be worth even more to the right customer. Because the Darkwood Fishing Pole is nearly unknown, the demand will be small, and you may have to educate potential customers before you have a market.

Originally the Darkwood Fishing Pole was very rarely dropped by Nightbane Worgen in Duskwood or Bloodsnout Worgs in Silverpine Forest.
