    Fishing in Runescape is one of the skills that you can level up. It is nice to have as a food source and to use as a way to earn money. There is always somewhere to fish and something to catch. There is even a fishing mini game for members paid accounts.

    How to Fish

    There are many things that you can use to fish with, from nets to lures. When you have what you want to fish with in your inventory all you’ll have to do is find a pool of water as a fishing spot and click on the water. Right click to fish and you can gather fish that will go straight to your inventory. These raw fish can be cooked on a fire to eat later on, or just fish to raise up your skill whether you need the food or not. For fishing gear there is a shop in Port Sarim and a members gear one in Catherby.
