What is fishing?

Fishing is a skill which involves catching fish from selected spots around Grinderscape. Higher fishing levels allow for better fish to be caught and also increases a player's catch rate. The fish that you catch may be cooked using the Cooking skill to create food which may be used later to regain hitpoints during combat. Fishing is also a good way to make money, as players often want to buy the raw fish to train their cooking levels.

Fishing supplies

Each fish requires a specific set of equipment in order to be caught. There are a few fishingmen in Grinderscape, called Harry. He has the supplies you need to fish. He can be found in Catherby, Karamja and some other places.



Fishing master

The fishing master can be found at Catherby, Karamja and some other places. He can give you your skilling cape for free when you reach level 99. In addition, he can give you skilling tasks to obtain fishing points or money (you will also get participation points when you finish your task). Finally, you can see his master's shop where you can spend your fishing points.
