Fishing is a skill that allows a player to catch fish. Fishing is a very useful skill when used in conjunction with Cooking, as cooking the fish allows it to be eaten and restore Hitpoints lost during combat.

Basic toolsEdit

Fishing smallnet


When beginning fishing, a net will be an important item to have. On Tutorial Island, players are given a small fishing net to catch some Shrimps and cook it on a fire. Small fishing nets can be used on fishing spots in areas such as Catherby and Draynor Village.


Fishing flyfish

At level 5, players will be able to fish Sardines in the sea. This requires the player to buy a Fishing rod and some Fishing bait from a fishing shop or another player. At level 10 fishing players can catch Herring using the same fishing method, and at level 25 catch Pike by baiting in a river.

Fly Fishing/LuringEdit

At level 20 you can go fly fishing! What you require is a Fly fishing rod and some Feathers which can be bought from shops, players or gathered from drops of chickens. Here you will fish Trout however by 30 you will have a change of catching Salmon as well.


Fishing harpoon

Here with a Harpoon and at level 35 you can fish Tuna in the sea. Tuna is a cheap, low-level healing fish when cooked that is good for Combat.

At level 50 you can fish swordfish along with Tuna, this can be cooked and sold for profit, or saved up in your bank.


Fishing cage

You will need a Lobster pot and level 40 fishing before you can seek out this fishing method to fish lobsters. Lobsters are a very popular food choice for all combaters everywhere!
