What reward can I get from fishing at the Fishing Hole? Is there treasure or equipment to be won from fishing, even if I catch the Hylian Loach?

You can earn a heart piece if you catch a fish as a kid, and the golden scale (which allows deeper, longer diving) as an adult.

As per Krazer, in the comments, there is a 50 Rupee reward from catching the Loach, and the owner will refuse to keep it in the fish tank (where your record catch is usually displayed).

No reward for the loach... expect for a purple rupee (worth 50 rupees). Talk to the pond owner after you catch one and select the second option "I want to talk about something..." – Krazer Dec 24 '12 at 18:58
@Krazer Whoa. I had no idea fishing in Ocarina of Time was so well documented... – Raven Dreamer Dec 24 '12 at 19:45
