Fishing rod detail.png

A fishing rod is an item used to catch fish through the Fishing skill. It can be bought from fishing shops around RuneScape, but it is also automatically obtained on the tool belt.

In order to fish, players must have fishing bait in their inventory; with the exception of Rocktail which require Living Minerals instead of bait, and catching from The Arc consumes Wushanko fishing bait instead. Bait is no longer required after the baitless fishing prawn perk has been unlocked from the Prawnbroker in the Player-owned house.
