What is fletching?

Fletching is a skill which allows the player to create various types of ranged weapons and their ammunition. The products of this skill are primarily used in the combat skill Ranged. The fletching skill doesn't have skilling tasks.

How to train fletching?

You can train fletching by making bows or bolts.

Making bows (u)

To make bows, you only need a knife and logs. Hold your knife on the log to make a bow. You can string the bow with bow strings from the skilling tools store.


You can buy a knife at the the shop keeper or shop assistant north west of bank at Edgeville for 210 coins.




There are a few ways to obtain logs:

  • Chop them yourself using the woodcutting skill;
  • Get logs from achievements;
  • Buy logs from other players.

Making bolts

There are two ways to make bolts: making them with unfinished bolts and feathers is the first way. The second way is to make them with bolt tips and bolts.

Unfinished bolts and feathers

Hold your feathers on the unfinished bolts to make bolts. You can make the unfinished bolts with Smithing. The feathers you need, can you buy at the shop keeper or shop assistant at north west of Edgeville bank.


Bolts tips and bolts

Hold your bolt tips on the bolts to make bolts. You can get bolt tips with the Crafting skill. The bolts can you buy at the ranged store at north west of bank at Edgeville.


Fletching master

The Fletching master (Hickton) can be found at north east of Catherby, close to the bank. He's able to give you skilling tasks to obtain fletching points or money (you will also get participation points when you finish your task). In addition, you can buy the skilling cape from him when you reached level 99 fletching. Finally you can view his shop where you can spend your fletching points.
