[BUG] +Fishing bonus items not stacking

90 Night Elf Druid
Currently, it appears that you may only have a max of +50 fishing bonus items (not including lures) count. My character has the Arcanite Fishing Pole (+40) with the High Test Eternium Fishing line (+5), the Weather Beaten Fishing Hat (+5), Nat Pagle's Extreme Anglin' Boots (+5), and the +fishing enchant to a pair of gloves (+5).
Wearing all my fishing gear only gives me +50 fishing, instead of +60. If I equip and un-equip each in a variety of combinations, they all appear to work individually. However, once I hit +50, the pieces stop counting (or at least my bonus fishing on my profession tab doesn't update past 50).

I'm sincerely hoping this is a bug and is not intended.

For me the bonuses on the Weather Beaten Fishing Hat and Nat Pagle's Extreme Anglin' Boots don't stack. Individually they give the +5 they should but with both equipped it's still only +5.

I have 4 pieces:
Weather Beaten Fishing Hat
Arcanite Fishing Pole (w/ +5)
Nat Pagle's Extreme Anglin' Boots
Fishing Gloves (w/ +5)

That should be +60 total, but the hat and the boots are not stacking - each individually is +5, but I only get +5 with both. And the +5 on my fishing pole is not showing up under any circumstances.

The on-use buff from the hat does stack, for a total +125.

I noticed the same thing as Garfal.

My boots and hat appear to be sharing the same +5 fishing and are not stacking.

I have a +30 rod, +5 enchant, +5hat and +5 boots and it only comes to 40 when it should be 45.
