Hi guys, I am bored so I am going to write you a guide for fishing! My veeeery first guide! Why I chose this? Because I like fishing IRL and I used it in RS back in 2010.. Good times.. So.. On with the guide!Content
- 1.0 - Why choose fishing?
1.0 - Why choose fishing?
- 5.0 - Where to get your gear.
That's a very simple question if you ask me. Food. Runescape players need food. To PK, to slay monsters, to level up, to become pro. And what is more pro then being your own food source rather then buying it from other people? You can make a lot of money from it from selling it, and save money too, by not buying lobs and swords on the market for tons of money. Also, you can train your Cooking level with it without buying Raw fish which is also a bunch of money. There. Your reason.2.0 - Quest list

(* = Healing varys)TIP:
If you have much raw Karambwan and want to start leveling up Cooking, then start with that. They have a requirement of 1 Cooking.4.0 - Random events
Random events also occur when fishing. So when fishing, you need to hold an eye onto it, because your equipment may be gone or you stop fishing if you do not.Big fish
The big fish sometimes randomly pops out of the water, takes your equipment and spits it out. If you don't retrieve your stuff in 60 seconds it will become visible for everyone to pick it up.Moving fishing spot
The most common thing in fishing is the moving fishing spot. The name says it all, the spot where you were fishing moved to another place. If you don't have an eye out for this, you stop fishing and don't catch anything anymore.River Troll
Also one of the most well-known pain-in-the-ass events, the river troll. The river troll is almost the same level as you, but if you don't have any combat equipment with you, you will most likely die. In crowded places where people are stacked, it is the best to step back for a second and see if you are not being attacked. My advice is to run away and don't die, but you can take him with armour.Whirlpool
Here you need to have an eye out for. Sometimes, a random whirlpool may show up when you are fishing. If you keep fishing in this whirlpool, you may lose your equipment. So my advice is just move to another fishing spot untill it is over.Evil Bob
Evil Bob, the random event which you can also be caught in if you are NOT fishing. The chance of Evil Bob taking you while fishing is increased, but, this is not yet been citated.5.0 - Where to get your gear
The gear you will be using comes from the Port Sarim fishing shop. Be sure to stock some in before you start.Location
