Let's now make a quiet fishing environment

Maatel yells "SHUT UP!!!"

 Fishing is the ability to catch fish and other creatures from the sea or rivers and lakes. To use this skill, you need fishing gear - net, pole, lobster pot, harpoon, etc - which can be bought at the Fishing Shop in Port Sarim. The fishing gear you use affects what type of fish you can catch, and you can only catch certain fish at certain levels (confused? check out the table below):

1 Boots Big Net 1 Catherby

50 Swordfish Harpoon 100 Karamja/Catherby Shore

  You can catch fish only at certain places. There are places along the coast of the sea where the water seems to bubble - these are places where you can catch saltwater fish (shrimp, Anchovies, and herring). Other places along the rivers near Barbarian Village and Lumbridge have the same thing, and there you can catch freshwater fish - salmon, trout, and pike. You can fish for higher-level fish (tuna, lobster and swordfish) only from the docks of Karamja.

When fishing with a Big Net you have a chance of getting a treasure chest(casket). The casket usually contains a small amount of gp, but rarely a "half a hey"
