There are many forms of sea life out there, just waiting for you to catch them. Through the art of fishing, you will be able to catch them all! Fishing is a calm, relaxing and repetitive skill, which is quite easy to raise. The higher your fishing level is, the faster you will obtain your desired fish. This guide will teach you all about the fishing skill and the benefits of a good fishing level. There are many fishing locations throughout RuneScape. As usual, members have the edge in fishing, with the Fishing Trawler mini-game, the Fishing Guild, and Catherby - the biggest out-of-guild fishing area closest to a bank.
The Fishing skill was released in RuneScape on June 11, 2001 coinciding with the release of Karamja and the gate between Lumbridge and Al Kharid.
