A plain fishing urn can be created at 41 Crafting. It is used with the Fishing skill to help with gaining experience.
Two pieces of soft clay must be used on a potter's wheel. Then, the Plain fishing urn (unf) must be fired to create a Plain fishing urn (nr). It must then be bound with a water rune, allowing it to be filled, and teleported when full. The urn is filled when the player has earned 2500 Fishing xp with the urn in inventory.
Once the plain fishing urn is full, it becomes a Plain fishing urn (full) and can be teleported to Ernie for 500 Fishing experience.
If catching two fish at once with high Agility, the urn only fills with xp from the first catch. The second does not count. However, harpooning swordfish while wearing the swordfish gloves will result in filling the urn faster.
Note: You can only have 10 filled plain fishing urns ready for teleporting. If you have 10 the next urn will not get filled until you teleport at least one urn away. Then you can fill up to another 10 urns.
