Fishing Buddy

231 - Watcher not Toggling Off Automatically

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Equip fishing rod.
2. Un-Equip fishing rod.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The watcher should toggle off automatically, when no fishing rod is equipped.  It does not.

What version of the product are you using?

Do you have an error log of what happened?

Please provide any additional information below.
Some of my characters are using Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat as their helm.  This is causing an issue with the Fishing Buddy Watcher.
  "Partial Outfit" is un-checked.  Watcher: "Only while Fishing" is checked.  If I equip a fishing rod, the watcher toggles on.  correct.  But if I un-equip fishing rod, watcher does not toggle off.  incorrect.  
If I un-equip fishing hat, watcher goes off.  If I check/uncheck an FB option, watcher goes off.  If I zone-in to another area, watcher goes off.  Clicking on the FB Minimap button clears the watcher, though I normally have it hidden.  (Also, the FB button changes position whenever I click it.  That is a separate bug.)
Un-equipping rod manually, with outfitter, and with /fb switch, all show the same result.
  Click to move is disabled when rod is equipped (working as intended).  When rod is un-equipped, and watcher is still on, click to move is enabled (working as intended).
(Also, "Sort by number caught": normally, I keep it checked.  But if I un-check it, it does not change to alphabetical order.)
The watcher should toggle off automatically, when no fishing rod is equipped.  This is very irritating.  
I'm not sure if there is an interaction with Outfitter.  Fishing Buddy Outfit Display is installed, but I use Outfitter instead (Fishing outfit is also registered in WoW Equipment Manager).  I tried disabling outfit display addon, but no change.
Several characters exhibit this problem.  One does not.  I tried copying the .lua files from the okay one, but it did not solve the problem.

    It seems if I use the hat to apply a lure to my rod, the watcher toggle functions normally. This issue may have started when I clicked "Easy Lures" or "Always Lure", to test them. Though, they did not seem to do anything. Also, "Open quest items" doesn't seem to do anything. Also, FB minimap button changes position even if I open FB with /FB. I do have it set to a custom position, using SexyMap.
