The Fishing cape is the Cape of Accomplishment for the Fishing skill. It can be purchased for 99,000 coins (or 92,000 coins with the ring of charos (a) or its imbued version) alongside the Fishing hood from the Master fisher standing inside the Fishing Guild by players who have achieved level 99 in Fishing.
Fishing is a popular skill to train to level 99. Although the experience/hour rates are not high, one can simply click on a fishing spot and wait without performing any other action. Fishing can also bring in a moderate profit, and can be combined with Cooking to train the two skills simultaneously.
The cape has an emote, lasting 6.8 seconds, during which the player harpoons a fish out of a small pond of water which appears during the emote. The Fishing cape must be equipped in order to perform this emote.
Should a player achieve skill mastery in a second skill after Fishing, their Fishing cape will automatically become a Fishing cape (t), which has a yellow trim. Should a player achieve 99 Fishing after any other 99, they will be unable to acquire the untrimmed version of the fishing cape.
Talking to the Master fisher gives an option to toggle the appearance of the cape to a retro version, overriding the normal appearance and making it look similar to how it did before the 2015 graphical update. Despite it not being a new item, the retro cape can be used with a keepsake key.

Perk[edit | edit source]
The Fishing cape's perk provides a 5% chance to gain an additional catch. No experience is given for the additional catch.
Up to three perks of the capes of accomplishment can be added to the max cape, the completionist cape, the trimmed completionist cape, and their master versions. Up to two perks of the capes of accomplishment of a specific skill type can be added to the respective Expert cape of Accomplishment. This can be done by using a Cape of Accomplishment with the desired perk on one of the capes. The cape of accomplishment is then lost in the process. To make space for other perks, it is possible to later remove the added perks, but with no reimbursement. All of the added perks are shared among max cape, completionist cape, trimmed completionist cape, and their master versions, thus it is not possible to have different configurations of perks on the different capes.
